TV: Queer Woman to Head New Star Wars Series

The next Star Wars TV series will be spearheaded by a gay woman, Russian Doll creator Leslye Headland.

Headland will serve as writer, executive producer, and showrunner for the new live-action series coming to the Disney Plus, an exciting addition to a franchise that has often been criticised for its lack of representation.
