Things are up and running in Shondaland! The Hollywood Reporter reports that Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes recently sold a new concept to NBC, and this time she’s taking on an FBI crime drama.
The drama, titled Under the Gun, will be written by Grey’s writer Peter Nowalk and produced by Rhimes and her producing partner Betsy Beers.
Under the Gun is about a woman named Erin Kain who works for the FBI and uses her personal experience to think like the criminals and crack the case.
