ABC continues to expand on its partnership with a prolific TV producer, giving a script commitment to a drama from Shonda Rhimes’ and Betsy Beers’ Shondaland production company, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.

The drama, “Protect & Survive,” is about the last Los Angeles Police Department precinct that’s left after a massive disaster. David Slack of CBS’s “Person of Interest” will write the script and executive produce with Rhimes and Beers.

“The drama marks the first sale of the season from Shondaland, which this month will take over ABC’s Thursday night lineup with ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Scandal’ in their new time slots — 8 p.m. and 9 p.m., respectively — and the Rhimes-produced Pete Nowalk rookie drama ‘How to Get Away With Murder’ at 10 p.m.,” the story notes.
