Shonda Rhimes period drama 'Gilded Lillys' gets pilot order

Posted on

ABC is taking another step forward to adding a new Shonda Rhimes series to its lineup.

The Grey’s Anatomy creator’s Gilded Lillys just got a pilot order at the network. If ordered to series, the show will be an unusual entry on broadcast TV since it’s set more than hundred years ago.

The set-up: “Set in 1895, this epic love story follows the opening of the first grand luxury hotel in NY, against a backdrop of vicious family rivalries, scandalous secrets, and conflict and co-mingling of classes.” Writer K.J. Steinberg (The Nine, Gossip Girl) composed the script. Of course, if you’re hankering for a new Rhimes show, there’s also the political soap Scandal coming up on April 5.
