Still A Boss: Shonda Rhimes Sells Seventh Show To ABC
Baayyyybe, it’s looking like there’s no end in sight for Shonda Rhime’s reign. In what has to be some type of historic feat, Rhimes has secured her seventh show with ABC.
She’s stepping away from the medical drama formula and she’s not going to be following a morally conflicted woman either.
According to Vulture, this time, Rhimes will serve as a producer for a show called “Still Star-Crossed,” a drama loosely based off of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
The series, created by Heather Mitchell, follows the lives of Romeo and Juliet’s families, the Capulets and Montagues, after the teenaged lovers killed themselves. Mitchell served as a producer for Shonda’s other hit show “Scandal.”
Rhimes will serve as a producer for the show.
ABC also picked up another Shondaland production called “Splitsville” and a yet unnamed nun drama in August.
All of these shows will be produced through Rhimes’ company Shondaland, which she founded in 2005 and still owns today.
Make this money Shonda!
