Gene Roddenberry pilot gets a deal
Project based on 'The Questor Tapes'
The son of "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry has struck a deal to try to bring one of his late father's forgotten projects to TV.
Rod Roddenberry has formed an agreement with Imagine Television to develop "The Questor Tapes," which is based on a 1974 Roddenberry pilot that ultimately aired as a TV movie.
The team is in negotiations with Tim Minear ("Dollhouse," "The X-Files") to produce.
"My father always felt that 'Questor' was the one that got away," Rod Roddenberry said. "He believed that the show had the potential to be bigger than 'Star Trek.'"
The original "Questor" is about an android with incomplete memory tapes who searches for his creator and his purpose. Roddenberry will develop the project along with Trevor Roth and Imagine Television's President David Nevins and executive vp of development Robin Gurney.
The announcement was made at the Academy of TV Arts & Sciences Hall of Fame induction ceremony where Roddenberry accepted the posthumous honor, presented by Seth MacFarlane, on his father's behalf.
