ABC in talks with Lucasfilm over live-action Star Wars TV series

August 5th, 2016 by bash Comments



It seems like Lucasfilm are in talks with ABC over a potential live-action Star Wars series.

At the first ever Television Critics Association executive session for new ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey over the past weekend, she was asked if she’d like to add a Star Wars TV series to her network,.

As a fan, I would absolutely love to say yes,” she said. “The conversations with Lucas, we have had conversations with them, we will continue to have conversations with them. I think it would be wonderful if we could find a way to extend that brand with our programming.

It’s all a little bit hush-hush. That company exists under a big shroud of secrecy. If you feel Marvel is secretive, Lucas takes it to a whole ‘nother level. They are ongoing. We don’t have an official timeline yet.

Most Star Wars fans will remember George Lucas planning a live-action Star series set between Episodes III and IV when he was still in charge of Lucasfilm.

Star Wars: Underworld had a number of top TV writers on board including Battlestar Galactica’s Ronald D Moore.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
