    Shonda Rhimes has added another show to her roster.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, Shonda has just sold an hour-long drama titled "Gilded Lillys" to ABC.

    The series will be written by K.J. Steinberg, who also written for the CW hit "Gossip Girl." Shonda and Betsey Beers will act as executive producers for "Gilded Lillys."

    Shonda will also be rolling out a legal drama called "Scandal" midseason.
