A Star Wars TV show is becoming more of a possibility than ever. During the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills Thursday, ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey revealed the network is in talks to turn the space fantasy saga into a prime-time series, according to Entertainment Weekly.
“Ohh, as a fan, I would absolutely love to say ‘Yes,'” she replied when asked if she was in favor of Star Wars being brought to the small screen. “The conversations with Lucas, we have had conversations with them and will continue to have conversations with them. I think it would be wonderful if we could find a way to extend that brand into our programming.”
However, Dungey explained there is no finalized deal yet. “It’s all a little bit hush-hush,” she said. “That company exists under a big shroud of secrecy. If you feel Marvel’s secretive, [Lucasfilm] takes it to a whole other level … [Talks] are ongoing. We don’t have an official timeline yet.”
