Mireille Enos to Lead New Shonda Rhimes Drama

at .  Updated at . Comments

Shonda Rhimes has a line on Mireille Enos to star in The Catch, her drama pilot for ABC.

The Catch is based upon a novel by Kate Atkinson in which a woman, Alice, is about to be married – and conned. 

In Danger Again

In the thriller, Enos' Alice investigates fraud for a living and, unbeknownst to her slippery finance, is not all she appears to be. When Alice's carefully constructed web of lies collides with her fiance's intricate con, the two become involved in a dangerous game of cat and mouse.

Jacky Ido has been cast as Alice's fiance, Kieran.

What do you think? Does this sound like another Shondaland winner, just like Scandal, Grey's Anatomy and How to Get Away with Murder?

ABC Quotes

Aren’t we judged by how we treat people? I don’t mean as doctors. I mean as people. Especially those who don’t have the same advantages that we have. We hire Shaun and we give hope to those people with limitations that those limitations are not what they think they are. That they do have a shot! We hire Shaun and we make this hospital better for it. We hire Shaun and we are better people for it.

Dr. Aaron Glassman

Why were you rude to me when we first met then nicer to me the second time we met and now you want to be my friend? Which time was it that you were pretending?

Dr. Shaun Murphy
