Period drama will revolve around New York’s first luxury hotel and the family who runs it
At this rate, ABC might have to change its name to the Shonda Rhimes Network soon.
The "Grey's Anatomy" creator has signed on for yet another series for the network, making for her fourth project currently in the works with the network, ABC has confirmed to TheWrap.
Set in 1895, "Gilded Lillys" will revolve around a family who owns the first luxury hotel in New York City, and their encounters with the hotel staff and guests.
The drama, via Rhimes' Shondaland production company, will be co-executive produced by Rhimes and her Shondaland partner Betsy Beers. "Gossip Girl" and "The Nine" writer/producer K.J. Steinberg will pen the script.
In addition to "Grey's Anatomy," "Private Practice" and, now, "Gilded Lillys," Rhimes has the drama "Scandal," about a professional "fixer," slated for midseason on ABC.
News of "The Gilded Lilly" was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.
