"As a fan, I would absolutely love to say yes" to a potential series, said ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey Thursday morning to a room full of reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills. “We have had conversations with them [Lucasfilm] and we will continue to” she said, adding that "it would be wonderful if we could find a way to extend that brand to our programming.”

Fingers crossed, Shonda Rhimes will step in and get a speedy greenlight for How To Get Away With Midichlorians.
