Paul Scheer says his Galaxy Quest TV series is "in a hold pattern," plans for it to be like The Force Awakens
“We currently are in a little bit of a hold pattern because our executive at Paramount, Amy Powell, was fired for some insensitive comments,” Scheer tells The Wrap. (Powell has called the accusations against her "baseless.") Scheer adds that his update on the 1999 sci-fi movie will honor Star Wars as well as Star Trek. “We want to create this kind of thing that feels like this epic sequel, but a continuation. I compared it to what The Force Awakens is to Star Wars," he says. "It is continuing a story but bringing in new characters."
