ABC Buys Gilded Lillys Drama From Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers
Betsy Beers and Shonda Rhimes
ABC is staying in Shondaland — this time with lush accommodations.
The network has just bought Gilded Lillys, another one-hour drama from Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers. Written by KJ Steinberg (Gossip Girl, The Nine) and set in 1895 in New York, Lillys is described as chronicling the history of the first true luxury hotel built in the city, along with the family who owns it, the staff who work it and those who stay there.
