Pilot News: ABC Orders Shondaland's Toast Comedy, Reverse Will & Grace

ABC’s latest crop of pilot orders include a wedding-themed comedy from Shonda Rhimes’ production house and a gender-swapping spin on Will & Grace.

Shondaland’s Toast, which has Scandal‘s Scott Foley and Alias alum Greg Grunberg as writer/executive producers, follows a wedding rehearsal dinner where the toasts made by an eclectic assortment of friends and family are illustrated by far-more-truthful flashbacks.

The other, untitled comedy project, from Ed Weeks (The Mindy Project) and Hannah Mackay (White Van Man), revolves around an unapologetic lesbian and her best friend, a neurotic straight male, as they navigate their dysfunctional, co-dependent friendship and the world of dating.

ABC’s other comedy pilot orders are The Fluffy Shop, starring Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias as a stepfather who navigates his home life during the few days he spends off the road each week, and Hail Mary, based on the Austrian series Braunschlag.
