Star Wars TV Show Is ‘Deadwood in Space’

LAS VEGAS - MAY 29: Actress Carrie Fisher's Princess Leia Organa character and actor Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker character from "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope" are shown on screen while musicians perform during "Star Wars: In Concert" at the Orleans Arena May 29, 2010 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The traveling production features a full symphony orchestra and choir playing music from all six of John Williams' Star Wars scores synchronized with footage from the films displayed on a three-story-tall, HD LED screen.

That Star Wars TV series you shouldn't expect to see for several years? "Our biggest problem is that these stories are adult," claims producer Rick McCallum, who's sitting on 50 already written scripts. "I mean ... these are like Deadwood in space. [It's] so unlike anything you’ve ever associated with George [Lucas] before in relation to Star Wars. These aren't for kids." Look, if there's a Darth McShane working blue on a bunch of Ewoks, we're in.
