Variety reports that Lucasfilm Animation is developing a new animated Star Wars TV comedy series. Yes, you read correctly… a Star Wars comedy series. But really, are you surprised? If there is one thing George Lucas loves, it’s milking the Star Wars franchise for every golden drop.
Jennifer Hill, winner of a Daytime Emmy and Gemini Award, whose credits include Nickelodeon’s The Backyardigans, will produce the show, while Todd Grimes, who’s credits include Nickelodeon’s Back at the Barnyard will direct.
Writers will include Brendan Hay, who has written for the show Republicans love to hate, The Daily Show. Also, Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, creators and executive producers of Robot Chicken, will have creative involvement in the series.
No start date or network have been announced.
