This article from TFN worries me:
Lucas On The TV Shows
Posted By Philip on August 2, 2005
"Star Wars creator George Lucas told a conference that he will turn his attentions more to television projects, including two Star Wars-themed series, Variety reported. Lucas made the comments in a keynote talk at the annual Siggraph computer graphics conference and tradeshow. 'My life's too short to become a film studio,' he reportedly said.
Lucas added: 'Lucasfilm is going more into television, but it's not a vision I'm running, either as executive producer or by laying out the groundwork.'
The first series is a 3-D animated Clone Wars series that will be made at Lucas Animation's Singapore facility. He said he'll start scouring Asia for talent and try to build up 3-D animation there. In his proposed Star Wars live-action series, he said: 'We're going do something that would normally cost [$20 million-$30 million] and try to do it for $1 million.' Lucas said he'll shoot the series on a Sony digital camera system that anyone can buy at an electronics store."http://www.theforce.net/swtv/story/Lucas_On_The_TV_Shows_94039.asp
What worries me is the quote by GL where they are going to try to do something that is $20 or $30 for $1 million. That scares me. IF it drives great character development and scripts, AWESOME. Unfortunetly I don't think it will and in the end the TV show will make the series weaker.
