The new series will be a sequel to the tragedy that is Romeo and Juliet.
You can add one more thing to Shonda Rhimes’ lengthy resume!
The head honcho behind shows like Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder is now developing her seventh show for ABC!
According to Variety, Rhimes is partnering with Scandal producer Heather Mitchell to develop a sequel to William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
Based off of the 2013 novel, Still Star-Crossed, the series will follow the Capulet family and the Montagues family following the deaths of their children. A premiere date hasn’t been set yet.
Sounds like (more) juicy primetime TV!
