Shonda Rhimes' Romeo & Juliet Sequel Drama Snags Formal ABC Pilot Order

The Romeo & Juliet sequel saga you forgot even existed has escaped death at ABC.

Shondaland’s Still Star-Crossed, a one-hour period drama based on Melinda Taub’s 2013 novel that chronicles the fallout from the legendary lovers’ deadly acts, has snagged a formal pilot order at the Alphabet network.

Heather Mitchell, who has worked on Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal, will write and executive-produce, with Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers attached as non-writing EPs.
