STAR TREK: DISCOVERY Showrunners Fired Mid-Production; THE MUMMY Reboot Director Alex Kurtzman To Take Over

After Star Trek: Discovery’s initial long string of problems, things had seemed to be going well for the series. Unfortunately showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen Berg have been fired for misconduct.

After a rocky road through development hell, Star Trek: Discovery has won the hearts of both critics and (some) fans. With its steller makeup and a talented ensemble, CBS is hoping to garner awards attention for the show, especially with Sonequa Martin-Green’s commanding performance as Burnham.
However, it seems as though the show has struck trouble once again.


Showrunners Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts have been fired and replaced because of their unreliable leadership skills, rather than the typical creative differences scenario. Furthermore, The Hollywood Reporter claims that the duo was abusive to the show's writing staff, with many of the writers feeling uncomfortable working on the science fiction series. Thankfully, this has come to an end, with The Mummy (reboot) director Alex Kurtzman taking on the mantle.


Having worked with the Star Trek: Discovery crew before, Alex Kurtzman is a very recognizable name in Star Trek's media history. In addition to being one of the co-creators of the show, he has also written Star Trek Into Darkness and 2009's Star Trek. Even though he has had a few fumbles in his career (The Mummy, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2) his experience with Star Trek as of late is at the least comforting. As the director of the show's pilot episode, it is no doubt that he is familiar with how to command a ship.
