According to Shadow and Act, Shondaland, Rhimes and producing partner Betsy Beers have sold yet another project to ABC - a drama titled Just Rewards, written by Paul Downs Colaizzo,
which follows the ups and downs of a bankrupt, 40-something divorcée
and her underemployed 20-something neighbors who get by earning reward
money by helping to solve unsolved crimes. ABC Studios and Shondaland are producing, with Rhimes and Beers executive producing and Colaizzo co-exec producing. This
marks the latest project on Shondaland's ever-growing slate, which also
includes, most recently, selling an untitled cop drama written by Dana Calvo, also to ABC; and she'll be returning to her feature film *roots* to write the screenplay for a drama titled War Correspondents, which will center on women war correspondents,for Sony's Columbia Pictures; and she also recently sold another new project to ABC, via Shondaland, that has been put into development, titled Lawless, to be written by KJ Steinberg, inspired by the real life of trucker-turned-lawyer Wynona Ward, founder of Have Justice Will Travel. And lets not forget that she already has a lot on her plate, with a 3rd season Scandal kicking off with a bang last night, and Grey's Anatomy in its 10th season.
