Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington developing new ABC project
Shonda Rhimes just picked up some more producing partners.
The über-producer behind ABC’s Thursday night lineup is teaming with Scandal stars Kerry Washington and Katie Lowes on an untitled dramedy about nannies.
The pitch, which is in the script stage, is described as an “edgy and comical upstairs-downstairs look at the insanity of modern child-rearing focuses on a clique of young nannies, a trio of interconnected families and their various support staffs, all trying to help the kids grow up when they haven’t quite grown up themselves.”
