Rick McCallum, one of George Lucas‘ producers, recently spoke with IGN about the up-and-coming Star Wars live action television show.

Its name?  Drum roll, please…

Star Wars: Underworld

According to McCallum, the series has a place in the Star Wars time line:

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].

It may be a while before we’ll actually see this series in the works because Lucasfilm is looking to keep costs capped at $5 million per episode and the ability to get all the effects done well with minimal cost apparently doesn’t exist yet.  You may or may not like to know that they’ve already got screenplays written up for 50 hour-long episodes… so all you Star Wars bastards out there are just going to have to sit tight on that cock tease until they’re ready to give it up.

Check out the interview after the jump for more deets!
