‘The Acolyte’ Showrunner Explains the Strength of Having Non-‘Star Wars’ Fans on Staff

One of the most exciting prospects of upcoming Star Wars universe is The Acolyte, a new series by showrunner Leslye Headland (Russian Doll). That’s because it’s being billed as a mystery thriller (a genre that has not often been explored in a galaxy far, far away) and seems to be largely unconnected to the events of the previous films and TV shows so far. Headland, who is a Star Wars mega-fan, knows the value of having non-Star Wars junkies on her writing staff, and in a new interview, she talk...
