Shonda Rhimes’ TGIT trifecta of Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder returns on September 24, but the TV titan is looking to shake things up with a new divorce comedy and convent drama for the ABC network.
Titled Splitsville, the divorce comedy hails from Trophy Wife creators Emily Halpern and Sarah Haskins.
On “Splitsville,” in the wake of a wave of divorces, the single residents of a suburban cul-de-sac join forces to raise their kids and get through it together.
The currently untitled convent drama “revolves around a group of Catholic nuns fighting the closure of their Bronx-based convent who must suddenly deal with three young novices whose arrival unearths long-buried secrets” (Deadline).
Alison Schapker will pen the script.
