The reason behind “Thank God It’s Thursday” on ABC has another show in the making. Despite many fans hoping her next show would be a spin-off to Scandal and based on B6-13, Shonda Rhimes is releasing the new series The Catch.
The series is one of the four pilots the network has picked up. Produced by Rhimes and Betsy Beers the series will follow a female forensic accountant whose career specialty is exposing frauds for a living. And in true Shonda-fashion the leading lady will have a tumultuous love life as her fiancé also happens to be a con man. In which her lies soon end up colliding with his illegal profession.
Considering The Catch is a thriller similar to her previous successful series Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder—which returns today—we’re excited who will be the leading lady of her series. With her knack for giving deserving black actresses the lead role, here’s our 10 actress hopefuls we’d love to see in her new thriller.
