    We're already set for a new annual Star Wars movie for the next few years, but it sounds like we could get another TV series as well. ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey announced on a press tour today that there are ongoing talks to bring Star Wars to television (via EW).
    "We have had conversations with [Lucasfilm] and will continue to have conversations with them," Dungey said. "I think it would be wonderful if we could find a way to extend that brand into our programming.
    "It's all a little bit hush-hush. That company exists under a big shroud of secrecy. If you feel Marvel's secretive, [Lucasfilm] takes it to a whole other level … [Talks] are ongoing. We don’t have an official timeline yet."
    Dungey wouldn't say if it would push for a live-action series, though with Disney XD already hosting an animated show in Star Wars: Rebels, it seems live-action would make the most sense.
    This wouldn't be the first time a live-action Star Wars TV series was in the works. Entertainment Weekly says that a project commissioned by Lucasfilm producer Rick McCallum had more than 50 scripts written for it from writers like Battlestar Galactica's Ron Moore. It was eventually canned because of how much it would cost to produce, and Game of Thrones network HBO passed on it because the ownership stake was too small.
