New Star Wars TV Shows on ABC

This would be a live-action Star Wars unlike "Rebels" or "Clone Wars". This isn't the first time either - before the property was bought by Disney there was a prequel series in production described as "Deadwood in Space" (which, at least to me, sounds a lot like "Firefly".) No word is this series would be related or something completely similar.

I have been wanting a Star Wars tv series for many, many years. I guess they finally have the technology at that level to make it happen.

Misgivings I have. You can have too much of a good thing.

Thinking about it, a TV show set during the Death Star construction could be fun. Just the day to day stuff. Darth Vader getting mad because people keep leaving takeout containers in the elevators etc.

Make the Empire Great Again!

Expandng: We could get a sitcom "Temps in Space" about the temporary employees and contractors (just like the one mentioned in Clerks) who are working on the second Death Star. When the series is canceled, they just blow it up, which brings up how evil the Alliance is.

Meet Dave, the TIE Fighter mechanic, who thinks his wife is fooling around with the guy from Empire Pizzeria on Deck 172.

They should set it on the Death Star and invite the industry Star Wars geeks you wouldn't trust with a SW movie (Kevin Smith, Simon Pegg etc) write/direct an episode.

One episode should be the Galactic Health & Safety Department visiting the Death Star and noting all the code violations.

Automatic doors that open to blind drops?
Thigh high safety railings on flimsy gantries over gaping chasms?

"I saw a monster in your trash compactor."
"Here's 20 credits."
"Monster pile of trash I mean."

"We put it there on purpose as part of our Go Green, Go Team! recycling infinitive. I can have HR send you an information pack if you'd like?"

  I'm pretty sure blowing up planets isn't being green.

George Lucas says he wants to spend 50 million per tv episode, which is way too much until costs come down.

  Subcontracted work for a Vogon HOV lane.

It will be like a Modern Family Star Wars adaptation.

  Well, I'm not sure if George Lucas is still involved at this point. It might be a completely different idea at work. 

After selling Lucasfilm to Disney in 2012, his role has greatly diminished, to the point where he's referred to the relationship as a divorce. The episode budget would be $5-6 million, not $50 million, regardless of what he's said in the past.
