    New Found Glory? The WB? Is this some sort of Pime Taradox?

    In 2005, plans for a live-action television series set between the prequel and original trilogies were announced at Star Wars Celebration.[98] In 2007, Lucas described the project as "one show that will split into four shows, focusing on different characters."[99] It entered development in early 2009.[100] The series was described as "gritty and dark" and was expected to feature characters such as Han Solo, Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian,[101] Boba Fett,[102] C-3PO, and Emperor Palpatine. Lucas described the series as "more talky. It's more of what I would call a soap opera with a bunch of personal dramas in it. It's not really based on action-adventure films from the '30s—it's actually more based on film noir movies from the '40s!"[103] Producer Rick McCallum revealed the working title, Star Wars: Underworld, in 2012,[104] and that it would focus on criminal and political power struggles in the "period when the Empire is trying to take things over."[105]

    Over 100 42-minute episodes were planned,[99] with 50 scripts written.[106] These were mostly second drafts, but due to their complex content, were too expensive to produce.[100] Ronald D. Moore was one of the writers, and extensive artwork including character, costume, and set designs were developed at Skywalker Ranch under the close supervision of Lucas and McCallum.[107] The project was still being considered after Lucasfilm was sold to Disney, including by ABC,[107] with stories being reviewed as of December 2015.[108] According to Kathleen Kennedy,

    "That's an area we've spent a lot of time, reading through the material that he developed is something we very much would like to explore. ... So our attitude is, we don't want to throw any of that stuff away. It's gold. And it's something we're spending a lot of time looking at, pouring through, discussing, and we may very well develop those things further. We definitely want to."[98]

    The plot of the anthology film Rogue One was originally pitched as an episode of the series.[109] The story of Han winning the Millennium Falcon from Lando was planned to be featured[101] and later developed as Solo: A Star Wars Story.

    We'll never know, what with all the archives being lost to bit rot.

    I seem to recall at least one popular-at-the-time band showing up in an episode of Smallville back in the day. I imagine this strip is just a Star Wars themed ribbing of WB shows back in 2005. :)

    It wasn't just WB. Right around that same time CW tried to get Star Trek Enterprise to have random early 00's bands on the show. "It's 150 years in the future and in deep space with limited communication with Earth," "Yeah, but, like, there's a place where they eat right? The bands can just, like, stop by like a USO tour."
