Still Star-Crossed: Shondaland Sells Romeo and Juliet Sequel Series to ABC

Still Star-Crossed Series

Have you ever wondered what became of the Capulets and Montagues after Romeo and Juliet killed themselves? … Well, too bad, you’re about to find out.

Shondaland’s Still Star-Crossed, a one-hour drama about the fallout from the legendary lovers’ deadly acts, based on Melinda Taub’s 2013 novel, has been sold to ABC, our sister publication Variety reports.

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 producers.

(Also, my condolences to any CW junkie who thought this might be a follow-up to the short-lived alien drama Star-Crossed. It is not.)

Fans of Taub’s book, are you excited to see it make the leap to TV? Non-readers, does this sound beyond crazy to you? Whatever you’re feeling, drop a comment with your thoughts below.
