ABC announces Shonda Rhimes' next drama project
Washington D.C. [USA], Jan. 18 (ANI): Television producer and screenwriter Shonda Rhimes recently has her newest drama project announced to go on air next season.
ABC network announced a pilot order for an untitled legal drama from the 47-year-old producer mogul, reports ew.com.
Previously announced as merely in development, the pitch goes, "Set in the Southern District of New York (SDNY) Federal Court, aka 'The Mother Court,' this legal drama follows brand new lawyers working on opposite sides – for both the defense and the prosecution as they handle the most high profile and high stakes cases in the country, all as their personal lives intersect."
Rhimes and Betsy Beers will executive produce, while 'Scandal' writer Paul William Davies will serve as showrunner.
If greenlit to series, the legal drama would mark her sixth current ABC drama, including 'Scandal', 'Grey's Anatomy', 'How to Get Away with Murder', 'The Catch', and an upcoming untitled series formerly titled 'Still Star-Crossed'.(ANI)
