Grey's Anatomy boss Shonda Rhimes is a busy woman. We guess that's what it takes to be a media mogul. The beloved showrunner is also the head of her own production company, Shondaland, and she's already sold her second project to ABC for this development season.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that the show, which is a cop drama, comes from Dana Calvo (Made in Jersey), who will write the pilot and executive produce alongside Shonda and her Shondaland partner Betsy Beers.
While the cop drama is untitled, it will be set in Miami, "in one of America's most eclectic and vibrant cities." It will, unsurprisingly, center on partners, one an "unorthodox detective," the other "methodical." The unorthodox detective is apparently male.
As we said, this is Shonda's second sale of the season. The first, also to ABC, was for a drama called Lawless, about a maverick lawyer who returns to her home town.
Now, just because Shonda has sold these shows into development doesn't mean they'll actually be airing in the future. In the TV world, even someone as influential and successful as Shonda will have a lot of shows fall by the wayside in the long march from development to pilot to pick up to air. Still, the more she sells now, the more likely we'll see something new from Shondaland soon!
