Shonda Rhimes Selling Comedy
Shonda Rhimes is keeping her creative cells strong while working for the ABC network.
Already a big studio hitter with drama series’ Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder, the content creator will be adding another Shondaland creation to her prime-time nightly takeover by selling a new comedy to the ABC network.
Splitsville will mark Rhimes’ second swing in the comedic realm as her experience comes from early work as a screenwriter. The show unravels the story of single residents living in the suburbs who come together to raise their kids and take on life and all the storms that it brings.
Oh yeah, and they’re all divorced.
Sarah Haskins and Emily Halpern will write the series and Ms. Rhimes will serve as the executive producer.
We’ll keep you posted if the show gains a green light.
