Shondaland Romeo and Juliet sequel series in the works at ABC
Shondaland’s ABC takeover continues: Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers are executive producing a new Romeo and Juliet sequel of sorts for ABC with Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy producer Heather Mitchell writing and also executive producing.
Based on Melinda Taub’s book Still Star-Crossed, the drama follows the conflicts between the Capulets and Montagues that arise after Romeo and Juliet’s deaths.
Shondaland is already responsible for the Thursday trifecta of Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away With Murder. ABC will be debuting another Rhimes-helmed drama when it replaces How to Get Away With Murder with new drama The Catch during the midseason.
