CBS has signed Embassy Row to produce its “Star Trek: Discovery” aftershow, All Access boss Marc DeBevoise told TV critics on Tuesday.

Michael Davies is set to executive produce the aftershow alongside Roddenberry Entertainment’s Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth, DeBevoise continued at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. Roddenberry is the son of Gene Roddenberry, who created the original “Star Trek” TV series.

The “Discovery” aftershow will run approximately 30-40 minutes, the CBS streaming service’s president and chief operating officer said, with “social elements” built in. There will be a new episode of the aftershow each night that CBS All Access posts a new “Star Trek: Discovery” episode.

Embassy Row, a Sony Pictures Television company, is the production house behind “Talking Dead,” “Talking Bad” and Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens: Live,” among many others in the genre.

“Walking Dead” aftershow “Talking Dead” is television’s No. 1 talk show — so “Star Trek’s” is in good hands.

“Star Trek: Discovery” debuts on CBS broadcast and CBS All Access on Sept. 24, 2017. Immediately after Episode 1 ends that evening, Episode 2 will drop on the streaming service. Each subsequent episode will be available Sundays on All Access.
