ABC Orders Pilot For New Shondaland Drama "The Catch"
ABC has ordered a pilot episode for a new Shonda Rhimes series, titled "The Catch."

If Shondaland gets any bigger, television sets everywhere might just explode from the sheer magnitude of talent and drama.

ABC has just ordered a pilot episode for a new Shondaland drama called The Catch. As TVLine reports, the series “is a thriller” that centres on an engaged woman who is “about to get conned.” What her fiancé doesn’t know is that she “investigates fraud for a living” and “is not all she claims to be.” Everything comes to a head “when the fiancé’s expertly planned con collides with her perfectly constructed lies” and “they plunge into a dangerous game of cat and mouse.

The series is helmed by Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers. If the pilot is picked up to series, it is likely that it will premiere this fall.

Shondaland shows currently occupy 3 hours of ABC’s Thursday night lineup with Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder! If The Catch were to get picked up, would it join Shondaland Thursdays to form an unstoppable juggernaut?
