The Current Status Of That Live Action ‘Star Wars’ TV Series
  |  @   |  

Once upon a time it sounded like a live-action Star Wars TV series was within a couple of years of becoming a reality, with George Lucas himself penning 100 episodes. That was over a decade ago now.

A few years later there were whispers that casting for the show was going on. Another few years later and we heard about a possible title: Star Wars: Underworld. And then, you guessed it, another three years later Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy said they still wanted to explore it.

The show was described as “Deadwood meets The Sopranos in space,” and there was even reports that it had begun casting and that it would be titled Star Wars: Underworld.

Sadly it looked like these two projects had died, but now the slightest sign of life has appeared for them both.
