ABC, which already has one full night of prime-time Shondaland productions, has more on the way. The network that airs a Thursday night lineup consisting of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away with Murder” — three drama series in which Shonda Rhimes has a hand — is now working on a Shondaland comedy.
Variety reports: “Shondaland is trying again with comedy development, setting up a project about suburban singles at ABC from ‘Trophy Wife’ creators Emily Halpern and Sarah Haskins.”
The new project, “Splitsville,” “revolves around a group of single residents of a suburban cul-de-sac who join forces to raise their kids together,” Variety notes.
Halpern and Haskins are penning the pilot and will executive produce along with Rhimes and Betsy Beers for ABC Studios.
Shondaland has another comedy already in the works, the report notes. The project featuring Greg Grunberg and Scott Foley was developed last year before being shuffled into the current development cycle.
