Back in June 2011, producer Rick McCallum revealed that the live-action Star Wars TV series was on hold for at least three years, because of its growing budget. They had commissioned over 50 scripts for the show, which he described last year as “Deadwood in space.” Writers such as Battlestar Galactica creator Ronald D. Moore penned the scripts, but in spite of everything, no network would bite due to the high cost of $5 million per episode.

But now, ABC entertainment president Paul Lee revealed to EW that the network is changing their mind, and is considering to revive the show:

“We’d love to do something with Lucasfilm, we’re not sure what yet. We haven’t even sat down with them. We’re going to look at [the live-action series], we’re going to look at all of them, and see what’s right. We weren’t able to discuss this with them until [the acquisition] closed and it just closed. »
