Here’s hoping we finally get a live action Star Wars TV show.
Television network ABC is clearly interested in fully exploiting the potential corporate synergy it enjoys as part of the larger Walt Disney Company family. Not only does it have one of the most eagerly anticipated shows of the fall in Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, but now it turns out that conversations are taking place to bring live action Star Wars to the small screen on a regular basis as well.
Talking with reporters during an appearance at the Television Critics Association press tour this weekend, ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee said that ABC has “started conversations” with Lucasfilm over a potential Star Wars television series, adding “I have an inkling in my mind, but they have a lot on their plate.”
I’m thoroughly looking forward to Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD show this fall and I think that show will give us a much better idea as to what a SW series on ABC might look like.
