News arrives that Leslye Headland, the co-creator, showrunner, and executive producer of Russian Doll will write and showrun a female-centric Star Wars series for Disney Plus.

Details of the exact plot of the series are being kept under wraps, but sources say it will be a female-centric series that takes place in a different part of the “Star Wars” timeline than other projects. Headland is said to be attached to write and serve as showrunner on the series, with the show currently staffing.

Reps for Disney and Headland did not immediately respond to Variety’s request for comment.
