Shonda Rhimes has landed yet another project with ABC.

Rhimes, the mind behind numerous ABC hits like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” has sold another pilot to the network.

“The Catch,” which is being executive produced by Rhimes’ Shondaland, centers on a gutsy female forensic accountant who exposes fraud for a living and has finally found fulfillment both at work and in love until a case comes along that threatens to turn her world upside down.

Jennifer Schuur is writing the project, which is co-produced by Helen Gregory and Kate Atkinson, with Julie Anne Robinson attached to executive produce and direct.

“Broad Squad,” meanwhile, comes from “Gossip Girl” alum Stephanie Savage an Josh Schwartz. Inspired by true stories, the pilot follows the first four women to graduate from Boston’s Police Academy in 1978. Savage and Schwartz are executive producing, along with Len Goldstein.

Bess Wohl is writing the project, which is executive produced by Fake Empire and Aaron Kaplan and produced by Alexandra Lyndon.

Both pilots are being produced by ABC Studios.
