Bryan Fuller , creator of cult TV hits like Dead Like Me and Hannibal, will serve as co-creator and showrunner on CBS Star Trek reboot.

In 1967, along with William F. Nolan, he wrote Logan's Run , the famed dystopic novel that led to a film and TV series of the same name. George Clayton Johnson, the sci-fi scribe known for his fierce independence, passion, and creativity, died Christmas day in L.A., according to his son.

Throughout a career that spanned more than five decades, the Wyoming native also notched credits on the Oscar-nominated short "Icarus Montgolfier Wright," Kung Fu , Route 66 , Mr. Novak , and Honey West , among other showbiz projects; and produced a wide-ranging collection of essays, short fiction, and comics.
