Shonda Rhimes is expanding her producing empire to include comedies, Deadline reports, and Shondaland has sold its first sitcom project to ABC: I Hate L.A. Dudes was created by* Internet heroine Issa Rae, best known for her web series The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl. The show centers on an aspiring journalist trying to hold her own on a male-centric talk show while also navigating the emotional cesspool of dating in Los Angeles.

* This article previously misstated that Rae would star in the series. So far, that's not the case. But come on! She so should. Vulture simultaneously regrets and prefers the error.
