“Star Wars” live-action television series gets a working title: “Underworld”


Posted by on

The long-anticipated “Star Wars” live action TV series is still a ways off, but at least it now has a working title. A new interview with one of the producers from the show gave a quick synopsis of what the “Star Wars” series will be about and also included an update on its state of production.

But, most importantly, producer Rick McCallum shared with IGN that the working title of the project is “Star Wars: Underworld.” Don’t expect this to be a crossover that involves vampires and werewolves, though. The title instead refers to the underbelly of “Star Wars” society.

“It’s underneath what’s going on,” McCallum said about the series’ focus. “It’s the criminals and the gangs. The guys who are running Wall Street, basically. The guys who are running the United States.”

There have been similar rumors about the show’s content swirling around the Internet. Allegedly the series will follow bounty hunters and be similar in tone to “The Godfather.” And that’s a “Star Wars” universe we’re totally okay with.

IGN reports that there are 50 scripts written for “Star Wars: Underworld” already, but that the production is on hold until costs can be lowered on the special effects-heavy series. McCallum said he’s hoping that won’t be too much longer, and that the delay might actually make the show better.

“[The scripts are] timeless,” he said. “They take place between ‘Episode III’ and ‘Episode IV.’ That 20 year period when Luke is growing up. It’s not about Luke, but it’s about that period when the Empire is trying to take things [over].”

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
