The business-as-usual CBS fall schedule is starting to look a lot less likely. 

The broadcast network has announced CBS All Access original Star Trek and Pop TV original One Day at a Time will both be used to give the network time until originals return to the air. 

“This is hardly a traditional fall season, but we are prepared with a strong slate of original content while our regular scripted series begin production,” said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment.
