ABC Orders Shonda Rhimes’s Crime Thriller ‘The Catch’

ABC can’t get enough of Shonda Rhimes. She already has a full night devoted to her programs (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder), and ABC is jonesing for more.

Rhimes is teaming up with Betsy Beers for The Catch. It follows a female forensics accountant who exposes fraud. As if that wasn’t enough, she also has a fiancé who is trying to con her.

Shonda Rhimes is known for creating shows that feature a female main character with a turbulent love life, and this show is no different.

If Shonda Rhimes bag a few more shows, they might have to rename the network The Shonda Rhimes Network. Here’s hoping The Catch is a hit.

TGIT returns this Thursday.
