ABC network has revealed that there have been active conversations regarding a live-action Star Wars series, during the company's Television Critics Association press tour.
Freshly hired president Channing Dungey has said that conversations have been had. "Oh, as a fan, I would absolutely love to say ‘yes.’ 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."
Back in January, former ABC boss Paul Lee told reporters that "we don't have any plans at the moment," adamant that the focus would remain on the animated universe.
