Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012
Lucas and McCallum talk
like Underworld is 'Deadwood adult', but I'm pretty sure McCallum also compared the thing to Battlestar Galactica.
In other words maybe it's dirty and grimy and takes itself seriously, but maybe also every second word is not in fact 'cocksucker.'
There's going to be a Marvel tie-in series, so it's very likely there will be a Star Wars tie-in series.
I believe the issue with Star Wars: Underworld
was that they didn't think they could budget it for television. Unless Disney is willing to basically funnel cash towards a Star Wars TV series...
