As if the Shondaland empire wasn't big enough, the mastermind behind Scandal, Gray's Anatomy, The Catch, and How to Get Away with Murder just sold another pilot to ABC. According to Entertainment Weekly, the newest show is legal drama, and it's one step closer to getting a premiere date.

"Set in the Southern District of New York (SDNY) Federal Court, aka 'The Mother Court,' this legal drama follows brand new lawyers working on opposite sides—for the defense and the prosecution as they handle the most high profile and high stakes cases in the country, all as their personal lives intersect," the pitch reads.

So, Grey's Anatomy in an N.Y.C. courtroom? We could definitely be into that. Rhimes will executive produce alongside Betsy Beers, and Scandal writer Paul William Davies will serve as showrunner.

If the pilot is ordered to series, it would be Rhimes's sixth ABC drama on the air—don't forget she already has a new show, last titled Still Star-Crossed, in production.
