ABC Orders Shonda Rhimes Pilot


Get excited, "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal" fans, because Shonda Rhimes' empire just keeps growing.

According to The Wrap, ABC has ordered the pilot "How To Get Away With Murder," a law school thriller from Rhimes and "Scandal" writer Peter Nowalk.

Although little is known about the show, The Wrap reports that it will center on a group of law students and their criminal defense professor who became part of a murder plot.

Of course, "How To Get Away With Murder" isn't Rhimes' only new project. In August, it was reported that she had sold a comedy centering on "a group of friends who are brought together after an unexpected turn of events."

All of this sounds pretty juicy if you ask us. Make way for the new Olivia Pope(s)!
