CHAOS ON THE BRIDGE
We worked with Content Media and Vision Films to simultaneously release William Shatner documentary Chaos on the Bridge in the UK and North America, a film that takes viewers inside the creation of Star Trek: The Next Generation, the bold attempt in 1986 to recreate the success of the original television series, through the eyes of the writers, producers, actors and executives who were involved.
Uncovering the controversial creation of Star Trek: The Next Generation, William Shatner Presents: Chaos on the Bridge features interviews with the original cast: William Shatner (Captain James T. Kirk), Patrick Stewart (Captain Jean-Luc Picard), Jonathan Frakes (Commander William T. Riker), John de Lancie (Q), Denise Crosby (Lieutenant Tasha Yar), Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher) and Diana Muldaur (Doctor Pulaski), as well as major players behind the camera who were involved with the production. Shatner takes viewers to the back lot of Paramount Studios, a mission control room at NASA, the theatre stage and the largest Star Trek convention in the world to reveal the never-before-told story of Chaos on the Bridge. What emerges is a tale of power struggles, ego clashes, and most importantly, the legacy of the man behind the legend: Gene Roddenberry.
