The series will never happen as long as Lucas demands the crazy budget for an episode.
The trick is figuring how to produce a live action show with a cinematic look on a lower budget. I don't think people would really be all that happy if a Star Wars live action show ended up looking like Space Cases.
I do not mean have NO budget. There are many sci-fi shows on air that have smaller budgets and look great - Doctor Who. I recently watched Dinosaurs on a Spaceship with that amount of effects and sets Lucas can produce a dozen episodes easy but maybe he wants too much CGI porn for a series that will not focus on battles.
So I do not get his idea of a huge budget for this show.
All I want is a good story.
They want to put CGI characters in every frame? Why? It's "just" a tv-series. For example Stargate SG-1 (and later Atlantis and Universe) - I loved that show, was epic, looked good and had "low budget". I don't understand why Luca$ is holding that show. If he wanna do something epic he should make a Third Trilogy (about Darth Bane or Grand Admiral Thrawn) or some spin-offs about Yoda or Boba Fett. I don't understand why they are not doing anything in that direction...
EDIT: Trolling is a no no.
Will it include your beloved character?
Oh, wait, she'll be dead.
Is this series still confirmed to come on TV in 2014?
No -- it has no set date yet.
It's not even in production.
My idea for the live-action series:
Open on Coruscant, on the night of Order 66. Smoke rises from the Jedi Temple as blaster bolts flash across it. Pan across the cityscape of the planet to an obscure street, where a small figure in a hood slices through pedestrian traffic at a fast walk. The camera follows her until she comes to a bridge. She looks back and forth, and, sure she isn't being watched, takes a thin cylindrical object from under her cloak and flings it off of the bridge. She continues on...
The next morning, stumbling a bit from fatigue and emotion, she makes her way through one of the planet's spaceports. Spotting a crew of Weequay traders, she cautiously approaches them:
Girl: Please, sir, help me. I've been stranded on this planet and have no way off! But I belong to someone, and maybe you know him. If you get me back to him, I'm sure there'd be a reward!
Weequay: A reward, eh? Well, I'm always open to that! But who is this... person I know?
Girl: His name is Hondo Ohnaka
Weequay: Hondo, eh? Sure, I know him, and I could arrange to see him soon. But, little girl, you had better not be lying to me. I can find other ways to make a profit off of you!
Girl: I know he'll be happy to repay... to pay you.
Weequay: Well, come aboard then...
As the girl walks by, cut to a starry sky. Pan down, revealing Florrum below. A title reads: "Ten Years Later".
A pirate ship makes its way towards the planet's surface. Cut to the bridge, where, sitting in the captain's seat is a late-teenaged Katooni.
Katooni: This is where the fun begins!
Cut to main title: Star Wars: Underworld
Well, it's a thought, anyhow...
