Mar 8, 2016  •  Post A Comment

A new project in the works at ABC from Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers’ Shondaland has a showrunner. Deadline.com reports that Gregg Mettler, co-executive producer of “The Muppets” and an alum of “That ’70s Show,” was named showrunner on the hybrid comedy pilot “Toast.”

Actors Scott Foley and Greg Grunberg are also behind the project.

“Written by Foley and Grunberg and directed by Gail Mancuso, ‘Toast’ revolves around engaged couple Max and Paige, who, over their wedding rehearsal dinner, have their eclectic family and friends give toasts recalling anecdotes about the couple — but flashbacks reveal that the toasts don’t always get it right, as we watch the true story of their complicated, funny and relatable road to marriage,” Deadline reports.
