*Shonda Rhimes’ Shondaland banner just picked up another project.
Dan Bucatinsky, the Emmy-nominated guest star on Rhimes’ “Scandal,” will adapt his best-selling book Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight with an hourlong dramedy project set up at ABC with Shondaland producing.
Bucatinsky — who recurs as James, the husband to the White House chief of staff Cyrus (Jeff Perry) — will write and executive produce “Show & Tell” alongside Rhimes and her Shondaland partner Betsy Beers. In addition to “Scandal,” Bucatinsky also serves as a co-executive producer/writer on Shonda’s other ABC drama “Grey’s Anatomy.”
“Show & Tell” is inspired by Bucatinsky’s Touchstone/Simon & Schuster book — a collection of stories of parenthood — and is described as a fast-paced hourlong dramedy about the lives, loves and scandalous secrets of a group of parents whose kids attend the same school.
Bucatinsky — who has two children with his husband, screenwriter Don Roos — is also behind TLC’s “Who Do You Think You Are?,” which on Tuesday was renewed for another season. In addition, he’s a writer/executive producer on Showtime’s “Web Therapy” with Lisa Kudrow, who recently booked a season three arc on “Scandal.”
This marks the latest sale this development season for Shondaland. The ABC Studios-based banner also has a cop drama from “Made in Jersey” creator Dana Calvo set up at ABC and “Lawless,” from K.J. Steinberg (Rhimes’ pilot “Gilded Lilys”), also with ABC.
