Lee told Entertainment Weekly that he would "love" to produce an ongoing Star Wars show following Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm.
"We're going to look at [the live-action series], we're going to look at all of them, and see what's right," the network boss explained. "We weren't able to discuss this with them until [the acquisition] closed and it just closed. It's definitely going to be part of the conversation."
Lee suggested that ABC's collaboration with Lucasfilm could mirror the network's recent work with Marvel to develop Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.LD. TV pilot - a loose spinoff from the director's movie blockbuster The Avengers.
"It's going to be very much up to the Lucasfilm brands how they want to play it," he explained. "We got to a point here with Marvel, a very special point, where we're in the Marvel universe, and very relevantly so, but we're not doing The Avengers.
"But S.H.I.E.L.D. is part of The Avengers. So maybe something oblique is the way to [approach the Star Wars universe] rather than going straight head-on at it."
Star Wars producer Rick McCallum - who is no longer actively involved with Lucasfilm - previously revealed plans for a TV series based on the franchise with the subtitle Underworld.
McCallum explained that the planned show would focus on "the criminals and the gangs" of the Star Wars universe, describing the project as "provocative", "bold and daring" and comparing it to "Empire Strikes Back on steroids".
