This series order will make the fifth drama on ABC for Rhimes, and will mark the first period drama from the super producer.

The series stars Clara Rugaard (as Juliet), Anthony Head, Lashana Lynch, Zuleikha Robinson, Medalion Rahimi, Ebonee Noel, Torrance Coombs, Wade Briggs, Medalion Rahimi, Ebonee Noel, Sterling Sulieman, Dan Hildebrand, Susan Woolridge and Grant Bowler.

Still Star-Crossed was written by Heather Mitchell (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal), and Michael Offer directed the pilot.
In addition to the five shows under the Shondaland banner (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, The Catch, Still Star-Crossed) Rhimes is also in development on her first comedy pilot Toast starring Jerrika Hinton.
