The forthcoming Star Trek: Discovery series is set to “blur the lines” between television and film, in order to create the best experience possible for Fans. Kurtzman told Collider, that, these days you can be unable to figure out those old TV vs. movie differences:
Look, here’s the other thing that’s happening, and you know this to be true. The line between film and television is utterly blurred. Not just at a storytelling level, but visually now. What we’re doing on Star Trek right now, that’s not that different from what we’re doing in the movies. I think that’s what people expect when they pay for Netflix, or for HBO, or whatever they’re going to pay for. That actually makes, as a storyteller, it makes it, in the many ways, you’re not limited by oh, we could never really do that on television scope wise because now, take a look at Game of Thrones. That’s a movie.
