Wherefore art thou, Shondaland enthusiasts? ABC has just released the trailer for Still Star-Crossed, the upcoming period drama that explores Shakespeare's surviving Montagues and Capulets after the tragic fates of Romeo and Juliet. Adapted from Melinda Taub's 2013 young adult novel of the same name, the series is produced by Shonda Rhimes and Scandal veteran Heather Mitchell, and follows the tumultuous exploits of Juliet's cousin Rosaline (Lashana Lynch) and Romeo's cousin Benvolio (Wade Briggs). We are the East, and Shonda is the sun.
