Shonda Rhimes is the modern day William Shakespeare, officially.
With Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder currently killing it on ABC, it's no surprise that yet another ShondaLand scripted series was just given a pilot order.
Still Star-Crossed will follow the characters who managed to survive Shakespeare's literary classic as they deal with the deaths of Romeo and Juliet — but knowing Shonda, there's gotta be at least four love triangles thrown into the mix somehow.

Scandal co-executive producer Heather Mitchell will helm the 16th century drama, and we're excited to see what quirky actors they get to fill Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes' shoes!
There's no word on when the series would air if it does get picked up, but with Shonda's other new show The Catch airing March 24, there's not about to be a shortage of must-see dramas any time soon.
Are U at all interested in another ABC period piece??
