Less than a week after it was announced Shondaland was developing a comedy for ABC, Variety reports that Shonda Rhimes’s production company will also be working on a religious drama for the network. The 60-minute project, which comes from scribe and executive producer Alison Schapker (Fringe, Lost), has no title yet, but it will focus on an ensemble of Catholic nuns that have to keep sketchy secrets and contest the closing of their Bronx convent. (Think Desperate Housewives meets Jesus meets Up, maybe.) Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers will also reportedly executive-produce. No other details were immediately available — aside from the fact that Shondaland is officially on a roll this season.
