There’s another show to add to our watch list.

As reported by Jezebel, Shonda Rhimes will be producing a new ABC show based off Shakespeare’s classic romance play, Romeo & Juliet.

Per usual, Shonda will put her special touch to the romantic drama that will carry on the tale of the star-crossed lovers. Author Melinda Taub’s novel Still Star-Crossed, sets the premise of the story, focusing on how the Capulets and Montagues settle their feud by arranging the marriage of two teens from each family. Think love, tragedy, and some pretty dramatic monologues.

Logistically, Shondaland writers Betsey Beers and Heather Mitchell will be directly involved in the script, while Shonda herself is solely coming on as a producer.

So now—in addition to Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, and The Catch (debuts Jan 26)—there’s another reason to be awe of in Ms. Rhimes.
