New 'Star Wars' TV Series Backlogged

Reports are swirling that Lucas has more than 50 hours of a new Star Wars TV show scripted. But it can't be released, because technology needs to develop more and one-hour dramas may not be on TV anyome? Hmmm... I'm confused.

Here's some quotes from the producer:

“It takes place between episodes three and four, when Luke Skywalker was growing up as a teenager, but it has nothing to do with Luke.”

“Basically, it is like ‘The Godfather’; it’s the Empire slowly building up its power base around the galaxy, what happens in Coruscant, which is the major capital, and it’s [about] a group of underground bosses who live there and control drugs, prostitution.”

“Network television and cable television as we know it are completely imploding, so we’re not really sure that in five years’ time we can release a dramatic one-hour episode because it is all reality TV now.”
