So too much Star Wars is not a good thing?

You're still bitter from the prequels.

Star Wars TV shows need to be kept in the animated realm. Live action should remain strictly on the silver screen. Star Wars calls for a level of visual effects which cannot be easily done on a television budget. If the producers want to do a story which requires far more of an FX budget than is normally feasible, that means they have no choice but to write some less action packed episodes, so they can loot their budget instead. We saw this happen countless times on Battlestar Galactica. Sometimes it resulted in a compelling episode, but just as often it seemed like filler.

Animation doesn't suffer from these sorts of limits. Space battles or a boxing match, it all costs about the same when it goes to the animators.

The title of this thread is misleading. ABC isn't doing anything yet, they have just expressed an interest.

Does anyone really want a live TV show? I want to go to Blur Studios and tell them to stop making great trailers for games that only disappoint. I want Blur Studios to do an Old/New Republic TV show that looks as good as the trailers they made.

The last big news out of George Lucas's pre-Lucasfilm's sale to Disney was about a live-action Star Wars TV project. Lucas claimed that 50 episodes had already been written but the production budget to make such a series was too expensive and would have to wait until costs could be better figured out. But as Entertainment Weekly reported, the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney means that the already-written series has another shot of actually reaching television sets, especially since Disney already owns ABC, giving them an easy distribution outlet for the product and cutting down on costs.

The series, which would apparently focus on feuding families living on Coruscant in between Episodes III and IV, as well as inexplicably on subterranean troglodytes living beneath the surface of the Empire's capital planet, was entirely written by none other than Ronald D. Moore, the man who brought Battlestar Galactica back from the dead and resurrected sci-fi space opera storytelling on television. It's certainly an intriguing premise now with Moore's pedigree behind the typewriter. Of course, there still hasn't been any word from Disney on whether it plans to move forward with the television side of the franchise or just stay focused on the films for the time being, but linking Star Wars to Battlestar is any fanboy's wet dream.

I'd be down for this. I'm so jonesed that Star Wars has been resurrected and taken out of the hands of GL that I can't wait for something of substance to start really coming down the pipeline with tangible news.
