Diego Luna

Lucasfilm



Disney+'s "Star Wars" series focusing on "Rogue One" spy Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) just landed the perfect showrunner: Stephen Schiff, who was an executive producer on FX's just-wrapped spy drama "The Americans."

The series, which is expected to begin production next year, will be set before the events of "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" (naturally), and follow the adventures of Luna's rebel spy.

Luna told StarWars.com when the series was first announced that he was thrilled to revisit the character: "We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply."

Besides being an executive-producer on the Emmy-nominated "Americans," Schiff's credits include writing "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," "True Crime" and 2017’s "American Assassin."
