Success Of THE FORCE AWAKENS Kills Live-Action STAR WARS TV Series

Star Wars Underworld, a Game of Thrones-esque TV series that would be set in the Star Wars universe and focus on two families vying for control of the galaxy's criminal underbelly is not happening anytime soon says TV Line. Is a Star Wars TV series approaching over-saturation?

Ever since Star Wars Underworld was first teased back in 2005, there's been at least one yearly report that the project was still in development and hoping to hit airwaves soon.  However, ABC President Paul Lee has officially put the project out to pasture.  TV Line spoke to Lee, Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy and Bad Robot's J.J. Abrams to get the latest update.  With a new trilogy and several spinoffs and prequels in development, the focus is on the cinema, not TV. Another roadblock is the fact that J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot has an exclusive TV deal with Warner Bros., which would prevent his involvement with any television programs at the Disney owned, ABC.  

For now, confirmed an anonymous insider to TV Line, the only TV project in development is the animated, Star Wars Rebels.  Do you think this is for the best or would you welcome a Tuesday night double-header of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and a Star Wars TV show?
