Shonda Rhimes Sells New FBI Drama Series ‘Under The Gun’ To NBC

Shonda Rhimes Sells New FBI Drama Series 'Under The Gun' To NBC

Can’t stop… won’t stop… as the saying goes…

The prolific series creator/writer/showrunner Shonda Rhimes, in a pairing with Grey’s Anatomy writer Peter Nowalk, has sold an FBI drama titled Under The Gun, to NBC.

What’s it about?

Under the Gun revolves around Erin Kain, a woman who goes to work for the FBI as she struggles to make sense of a terrible event in her past that ruined her life and tore her family apart. While her young and fragile appearance doesn’t typically suggest that she’s best suited to work as a field agent, her dark past helps her get inside the head of criminals who were normal one day and cracked the next. 

Nowalk will write the script and executive produce along with Rhimes and her Shondaland producing partner Betsy Beers

As THR notes, this new sale marks the first one of the 2012/2013 season for Rhimes who sold four new dramas – three to ABC and one to Fox – last season. One of them, the period drama Gilded Lilys, was ordered to pilot, but didn’t get picked up as a series.

Her last season freshman hit series Scandal (one of the 4) will make its season 2 debut in less than 3 weeks.

Is she actually going to get a black person to be the lead? Sorry, that's my problem with Shonda — I want to support, but outside of Scandal, she's never really had a strong black female lead on her shows. I'm still waiting for a young black (FEMALE) surgical intern on Grey's! I commend her for all that she does, but come on, son…

This woman is the definition of a legal hustle. She is a bad woman (in a good way). She made sure that she was not beholden to ABC. I love her even more for going out of her way to create classy, professional starring roles for people of ALL colors. Get it Shonda!!!!
