Live-Action STAR WARS Series Gets a Title

TV Star Wars by Joey Paur

Red Tails producer Rick McCallum recently gave an interview in which he may have revealed the title to the live-action Star Wars TV series currently in development. Are you ready for what it's being called? OK...

Star Wars: Underworld

I guess that title is a good fit for what we know of the show so far. The last we heard there were 50 one hour scripts that have gone through three drafts. McCallum previously described the sci-fi drama as being like The Godfather, with mob bosses and bounty hunters, which makes the Underworld aspect of the title make sense,

Basically, it is like The Godfather; it’s the Empire slowly building up its power base around the galaxy, what happens in Coruscant, which is the major capital, and it’s a group of underground bosses who live there and control drugs, prostitution.

It's going to be 3 or 4 years before we see this series released, but I'm excited as hell to see it happen. I love the concept, and if done right with limited involvement from George Lucas it could be extremely cool. What are your thoughts?
