    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."

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.
