"Finally, I have a feeling GL wont have much to do with series, other than his named slapped on it as Ex. producer." After what happened with the Holiday Special, no way in hell that Lucas will not have a very hands on approach to the TV series. I agree he will not direct and probably not write the actual shooting scripts very much, but he will sure as heck keep an eye on those who do. I think a lot of people here are missing the point. You are going to have to appeal to a very wide audience to have this show be a sucess,the vast majority of which could not be classified even as casual fans.There are not enough fans to support a TV series as expensive as the Star Wars show will be. Lucas has to target this at the non fan to make it work. And the last two Star Trek films show that targeting the fans and having "the fans" call the shots is NOT a good idea.
