These days the residual contracts in TV projects are strong, but that wasn’t always the case. Recently it was shared that original cast of Star Trek did not get any residuals for their work at all.
William Shatner spoke out about it in an interview, however he did not seem to be too upset about the fact.
“The series Star Trek that I was in, was so early on, there were no residuals. So none of us ever have received residuals. That came into being about three years later. Every movie we made subsequent, even Star Trek I, they burned the sets. There was no reason to store them, because there was never going to be another movie. I’ve worked gainfully all these years. I’m really grateful for it. It’s affected my life incredibly.”
