Bryan Fuller is one of my favorite TV writers. As Herc at Ain’t It Cool has noted previously, Fuller has written two of the Heroes TV series’ best episodes “Company Man” and “Cold Snap.” As showrunner of Hannibal, Fuller put out three amazing seasons.
Hannibal is one of my favorite TV series from the last few years. What made the series great is it was very strongly character driven. The characters’ motivations and actions propelled the series and that’s what I found most impressive about it.
A series like Star Trek requires strong characters that can hold their own amidst all the sci-fi imagery that audiences are getting numb to, and if anyone can deliver on characters like that, it’s Fuller. I’m very excited to see his take on the Star Trek mythos!
