The gift of ShondaLand keeps on giving.
According to Variety, Kerry Washington and her Scandal co-star Katie Lowes (who plays Quinn Perkins) are executive-producing a ShondaLand series that's in development at ABC. Look at Shonda Rhimes keeping her actresses working—and behind the camera, too, where folks say the real money is.
The untitled show is a dramedy about a group of nannies, the families they work for and each family's support staff. Rhimes is keeping it in the family, since the series' pilot writer is also a current executive at ABC.
Remember we told you about all the projects that Rhimes has in development at ABC—never mind the three shows she already has on the air Thursday night? Nice to see that she's showing Washington and Lowes the producer ropes in Hollywood.
