Secret Hideout, Inc. is a television and movie production company founded and owned by Alex Kurtzman, incorporated on 21 August 2014 and operating out of Los Angeles, California, USA. [1] The company is producing the Star Trek series Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Short Treks, Star Trek: Picard, Star Trek: Lower Decks, and Untitled Section 31 series.

According to an official announcement, the company will focus on "developing compelling filmmaker-driven projects and deeper storytelling narratives with an eye towards franchise and multi-quadrant films". The company signed a three-year production agreement with Universal Studios in September 2014. [2] Kurtzman needed to establish his own production company, when he parted ways with Roberto Orci, in the guise of their co-owned K/O Paper Products production company, for feature films in 2014 and for television in 2016, when Kurtzman signed his deal with CBS Television Studios, which eventually resulted in Discovery. [3] Several K/O staffers moved over to Kurtzman's new company.

In mid-2018, Kurtzman signed a five-year deal with CBS to oversee an expansion of the Star Trek franchise under Secret Hideout, as well as agreeing exclusive rights to any non-Trek series developed by the company. [4]

On 6th May 2019, it was officially announced that the newly formed "Star Trek Global Franchise Management" would be based out of Secret Hideout's premises. [5]
