Shonda Rhimes, Creator of 'Grey's Anatomy,' Lands Script Development Deal With NBC For Crime Drama THR's Live Feed blog
Shonda Rhimes, the creator of "Grey's Anatomy" is "reteaming with 'Grey's Anatomy' scribe Peter Nowalk for" a script commitment with NBC, writes Lesley Goldberg in an exclusive story for The Holllywood Reporter's Live Feed blog.
Goldberg writes that the script is for a series called "Under the Gun," which "revolves around Erin Kain, a woman who goes to work for the FBI as she struggles to make sense of a terrible event in her past that ruined her life and tore her family apart. While her young and fragile appearance doesn't typically suggest that she's best suited to work as a field agent, her dark past helps her get inside the head of criminals who were normal one day and cracked the next."
The story adds, "The script deal marks the 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Private Practice' and 'Scandal' showrunner's first sale of the season for her Shondaland banner. Last season, Rhimes and company sold four dramas -- three to ABC and one to Fox. One, period drama 'Gilded Lilys' from 'Gossip Girl's' K.J. Steinberg, was ordered to pilot but was not ultimately picked up to series."
