Shondaland sells third show to ABC

Do not stand in front of the train that is Shondaland, it will run your butt over. Shonda Rhimes’s winning streak continues with yet another new new show coming to ABC. The laest show is about doctors in Baghdad during the war trying to save the lives of wounded soldiers. Get this, the script is being written by Zoanne Clack, current producer of Grey’s Anatomy and a former ER doctor. Sounds like it could pretty authentic.

Shondaland currently owns Thursday night on ABC when Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy and How to Get Away with Murder all air back to back. As we have previously reported ABC has also picked up Shonda’s drama about nuns in a convent and Splitsville a comedy about divorce. In addition ABC had picked already picked The Catch, a drama about a female fraud investigator.

It’s beginning to look like we should just rename ABC The Shonda Channel. I’m OK with that.
