    That sounds like it has potential, but I don't get Showtime. I'll have to get the DVDs if it turns out good.

    ^I'm in the same position. I'm really starting to wish I could afford to upgrade to digital cable.

    Ah, the House 2 show. As in the movie House 2, no relation to that Dr. fella from tv.

    Travelers sounds interesting, except that it seems like it will be a "family" show.

    Both of those could be cool. Hopefully the immortals show won't end just being a Highlander rip off.

    ABC Wants To Develop TV Shows Based On 'Star Wars' Characters

    some from wired.

    so I thought this was not worthy of it's own thread since no specific news yet.

    Cool. I wonder if they could be finally giving us Underworld, or if they'll decide to go in a new direction.

    Pure scifi is flourishing in movies right now, I really hope 2-3 of those types of shows make it to air.

    Everything we've heard of underworld wouldn't work with the family friendly image ABC and Disney have. Since Disney is less likely to make a show for another network then location lucasfilm was, I would guys the odds of ever seeing underworld are lower than ever.

    Is it wrong that I read this post and immediately assumed that it was about vampires vs. lycans?

    That's what I thought, too. Apparently it's a Star Wars reference that I don't get.

    Underworld was reported in 2012 as the working title of the Star Wars live-action TV series that Lucas has been developing for years but refusing to put into production because he couldn't acheive the visuals he wanted on a TV budget and he's become so spoiled by success that he's forgotten how to compromise. However, apparently that was a misunderstanding and it wasn't really being called that after all.

    Ah, I didn't realize that title was a mistake.
    As for ABC, not all of their shows are family friendly. I don't know if I'd call Revenge or Lost a family friendly show, and I doubt a show called Mistresses is particularly family friendly.

    Yeah, I remember hearing about that now, but I think I can be forgiven for seeing the title Underworld and immediately thinking of Selene and Lucian . . . . :)

    And, you know, an Underworld TV show, based on the movies, might not be a bad idea . . ..

    Now that I think of it, given the success of Space Command and Veronica Mars Kickstarter projects, I wonder why JMS hasn't gone that route to fund more B5.
