ABC has picked up a new drama from Shonda Rhimes, who rules Thursday night television viewing with “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away with Murder.”

The Catch” from Shondaland’s Rhimes and Betsy Beers follows a female forensic accountant whose career specialty is exposing fraud for a living. Much like the leading ladies of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How To Get Away With Murder,” the sure-to-be fierce woman at the forefront of the crime thriller is not all she appears to be and has a tumultuous love life. She’s about to get married, but also about to get conned by her fiancé — little does he know, her lies end up colliding with his cons. The pilot will be exec produced by Shonda Rhimes, Beers and Julie Anne Robinson, and co-produced by Helen Gregory and Kate Atkinson. Robinson is set to direct and Jennifer Schuur will pen the pilot. Source: Variety

Shonda Rhimes has changed the face of Thursday night television viewing. She also publicly dissed Katherine Heigl, a former castmember of “Grey’s Anatomy,” saying “I don’t put up with bullsh*t.”
