[News] ABC in Talks to Develop ‘Star Wars’ TV Shows


We’ve already seen Disney’s relationship with Marvel bear fruit for ABC’s TV programming with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and while it’s conceivable to theorize that further exploration into the world of Marvel superheroes could happen if that show succeeds, it seems like ABC is also interested in plucking a few riches from a galaxy far, far away as well.

Yes, apparently Star Wars may be on the table for ABC, but it seems as though the development process could take quite some time, due to the lengthy film franchise reboot that is in presently underway. Here’s ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee at the TCAs, delivering his thoughts on mining more from Marvel and the beginning flickers of relationship between his network and the voluminous Star Wars universe.

“We are loving this relationship. We have lots of little schemes, in the back of our mind. We haven’t quite got one ready that we can announce yet. But the relationship with Marvel, and actually with other Disney IP, across the company, is something that we’re ambitious to build, absolutely.”

 Obviously, as is the case with S.H.I.E.L.D., any Star Wars project would be made in addition to the ‘movieverse’, so it’s not like we’re primed for a project that would focus on Han Solo or Boba Fett. Like Marvel, though, the Star Wars bench is deep, especially when you take into account the plethora of characters created in the expanded universe.
