Shonda Rhimes is hard at work developing another TV show everyone can obsess about. The director and producer, who has hit shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” under her belt, will soon add her fifth drama to ABC’s lineup. Rhimes’ latest project has not yet been given an official title but will center on a group of Catholic nuns who are desperate to stop their Bronx convent from closing.
Of course, you can’t have a Rhimes-developed TV show without a little drama, so the nuns will also be dealing with three newbies who are trying to expose “long-buried secrets.” So far, no casting information for the show has been announced.
According to Deadline, Rhimes and Betsy Beers’ Shondaland is behind the project, with both women serving as executive producers along with Alison Schapker.
Rhimes has essentially taken over Thursday nights on ABC with her “Thank God It’s Thursday” lineup of shows, including “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal,” and “How to Get Away with Murder.” All three shows will kick off their new seasons on Sept. 24. The director is also working on another new show called “The Catch,” starring Mireille Enos as a fraud investigator who is conned out of her money by her fiancé and is out for revenge. “The Catch” is expected to premiere at midseason.
