*Shonda Rhimes has landed yet another series with ABC, bringing her total active projects with the network to four.
The “Grey’s Anatomy” creator signed a deal for her new show “Gilded Lillys,” which is set in 1895 and revolves around a family who owns the first luxury hotel in New York City, and their encounters with the hotel staff and guests, reports TheWrap.
The drama, via Rhimes’ Shondaland production company, will be co-executive produced by Rhimes and her Shondaland partner Betsy Beers. “Gossip Girl” and “The Nine” writer/producer K.J. Steinberg will write the script.
In addition to “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Private Practice” and, now, “Gilded Lillys,” Rhimes has the drama “Scandal,” about a professional “fixer,” slated for midseason on ABC. A fifth project at ABC, “Off the Map,” was cancelled.
