"Star Wars" TV Show Is Being Described as "'Deadwood' in Space"

"Star Wars" TV Show Is Being Described as "'Deadwood' in Space"

If you think the Star Wars television show that is supposedly happening is taking too long to, you know, actually happen, producer Rick McCallum has an explanation for the hold-up: It's because the stories are "adult"! Makes sense, right?

"Our biggest problem is that these stories are adult," he explained to Den of Geek. "I mean ... these are like Deadwood in space. [It's] so unlike anything you’ve ever associated with George [Lucas] before in relation to Star Wars. These aren't for kids."

We should point out that, at almost exactly this same time last year, McCallum claimed the show "basically ... is like The Godfather." So, based on this, we can infer it's like a Western mafia crime drama in space?

Yeah, we'd watch it.
