A Blank Page Far, Far Away...


It appears George Lucas will leave his little fortress in Northern California this week to come down to Los Angeles and interview several writers about a little project he's producing. He's going to be finding the scribes he wants to come up to Skywalker Ranch in November for a little Pow-Wow regarding his live-action STAR WARS series.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting the plan is to have them write the initial 13 episodes and then take them out to the networks. So why are we reporting this? Well, there are several networks looking at making a deal with Lucas but the two primary ones are Fox and ABC... you know, the one ran by the Mouse? The ones that are working on several LucasFilm properties right now for their theme parks? I wonder what Fox is planning on offering in their theme parks? Whaa? They don't have... Really? Oh, that's right! I forgot about that...

I hope those writers don’t mind working at well-below market rates, since Lucas and Co. still think that working on the Star Wars properties is a “privilege”.
