So far the realm of Shondaland has only churned out one non-hitter, 2011's Off the Map. All the rest, though, have either hit it huge — with Grey's Anatomy starting things off, Scandal solidifying the brand, and How To Get Away With Murder declaring it unbeatable — or done well enough, a la Private Practice and its six seasons. It's too early to tell what the next generation of Shonda Rhimes-produced television will bring us, but we've got at least one hint now: Mireille Enos is Shondaland's next leading lady, to star in a drama called The Catch which is in the works for ABC. 

The Hollywood Reporter reported the casting Monday, describing The Crash as a thriller following a doubly duplicitous marriage: 

Unbeknownst to her slippery fiancé, the heroine — who investigates fraud for a living — is not all she claims to be. And when the fiancé's expertly planned con collides with her perfectly constructed lies, they plunge into a dangerous game of cat and mouse.

Enos previously starred in The Killing on AMC and later Netflix. THR also describes her character as "a feisty woman with a nervy spirit," which means she'll fit in nicely with the other women leading Rhimes' primetime, as a number of them could also definitely fit that description. 

Who knows what lies in store for the future of Shondaland. But for now it's pretty unkillable, so it's kind of the place to be on network television these days.
