There have been rumors of a live action Star Wars T.V. show set between the two trilogies for a number of years, and now it looks like it might really be happening. In addition to the third trilogy of movies Disney has expressed interest in developing the show to air on ABC.
There is already one Star Wars show being developed for another Disney owned network, Disney XD, and The Clone Wars, which airs on Cartoon Network will also likely move to Disney XD in the foreseeable future.
What the new trilogy might mean for a live action show is still unclear. In the past Warner Brothers forbid Smallville from featuring Batman while The Dark Knight trilogy was still ongoing, but Disney might be more lenient. The Disney owned Marvel cinematic universe is crossing over to T.V. with a S.H.I.E.D. show being developed, also for ABC.
The S.H.I.E.L.D. show will overlap with the Marvel films; however major characters, like Iron Man aren’t expected to be a regular fixture. We might see something similar with a Star Wars show. So far sources have said the show will be about rival families on Courasant and that a bounty hunter will be the main character.
