Scandal is currently airing on ABC, but two of the stars of the series are working on a new series for the network. Kerry Washington and Katie Lowes are executive producing a new dramedy for Shondaland.
At this time, the series is not titled, but Deadline shared the basic premise of the series that will be written by Bess Wohl.
"It is described as an edgy and comical upstairs-downstairs look at the insanity of modern child-rearing and focuses on a clique of young nannies, a trio of interconnected families and their various support staffs, all trying to help the kids grow up when they haven’t quite grown up themselves."

Kerry Washington and Katie Lowes are teaming up with their "Scandal" boss Shonda Rhimes, but this time around, they'll be joining her behind the scenes. The actresses will executive produce an as-yet-untitled series via Shondaland currently in development at ABC. The hour-long show will focus on a group of young nannies. The project will be an upstairs-downstairs portrait (think: "Downton Abbey") about contemporary child-rearing. The drama focuses not only on the nannies themselves, but the trio of families they work for, as well as other support staff that keep the households running. Actress-writer Bess Wohl, who formerly starred in "CSI: NY," will write the script and Ep with Rhimes, her producing partner Betsy Beers, Washington, Lowes and the latter's husband, Adam Shapiro. If the potential series gets picked up, it won't be the first producing credit to Washington's name. The "Django Unchained" star will play...

Two of Shondaland's gladiators are producing a new TV show for ABC. The Wrap reports Scandal's Kerry Washington and Katie Lowes are two of the executive producers on a new project alongside Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers, and Adam Shapiro. The show is written by Bess Wohl (also an executive producer), who played Kendall Novack on CSI: NY and tells the story about a clique of nannies and the families they mother. While this project is still in development, it makes you wonder: How big can Shondaland get? This is the fifth sale to ABC so far, including a drama with a habit, a combative medical drama, and a postmortem of Romeo & Juliet. Tgit was just the beginning. »

Per our sister site Deadline, CSI: NY alum/onetime Private Practice guest star Bess Wohl will pen the project, which is described as “an edgy and comical upstairs-downstairs look at the insanity of modern child-rearing,” focusing on a clique of young nannies and the interconnected families for which they toil.

"Scandal" cast-mates Kerry Washington and Katie Lowes have signed up to executive produce another Shondaland series - an untitled hour-long comedy-drama set up at ABC, written by actress Bess Wohl, and is described as an edgy and comical upstairs-downstairs look at the insanity of modern child-rearing, with the focus placed on a group of young nannies, the interconnected families they work for, and their various support staffs. It reminds me of the "Downton Abbey"-esque Shondaland project that was announced in 2012 - a period drama set in 1895, revolving around the family who owned New York’s first true luxury hotel, the support staff who work there, and the people who pass through. Although both are clearly different projects. Shondaland’s Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers will also executive produce, with Wohl, Washington, Lowes and Adam Shapiro. No Eta yet, and no casting hints. Although, given the premise, I'd expect that »

'Steve Jobs' movie poster. 'Steve Jobs' movie: 'Riveting, high speed' biopic starring Michael Fassbender at his best On the outside, computers are clean, symmetrical slabs of molded polycarbonate; pleasant, or at least inoffensive, to look at. On the inside, however, the part most consumers don't see, is a bento box of circuit boards, memory chips, wires, graphics cards, and cooling systems, busily processing and moving the innumerable pieces of information that make the unit work flawlessly or, occasionally, crash. What director Danny Boyle's ferocious three-act rocket ride, Steve Jobs, teaches us about its eponymous tech icon, is that he was much like a computer: on the outside, clad in his signature black turtleneck and jeans, he was trim, bespectacled and flawlessly functioning. On the inside, he was on the brink of crashing, his internal Os in constant operation, avoiding, justifying, and occasionally acknowledging his poor treatment of »

The issues with bringing Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs biopic to the big screen have been well-publicized, with a number of actors dropping out at the last minute and those pesky “Sony Hack” emails making the behind the scenes problems clear. However, despite all of that, the movie has come together pretty damn well if early reviews are anything to go by.
The synopsis reveals that events in Steve Jobs will be “set backstage at three iconic product launches” with the end point set to be “in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac.” It adds that “the film takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.”
The clips above (which run for nearly five minutes), cover those key moments and several others, providing a great look at the movie’s well-publicized Aaron Sorkin dialogue and some very impressive performances. »

"We're not a pit crew at Daytona, this can't be fixed in seconds!" Universal has debuted a full-length trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs movie, starring Michael Fassbender as the innovator Steve Jobs. This doesn't exactly make him look like the nicest guy in the world, as the trailer seems to show quite a few extra moments through his long career, including very early on at Apple and an amusing tech failure with the original Os just before a conference. The cast includes Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Sarah Snook, Katherine Waterston, Michael Stuhlbarg, Vanessa Ross, John Ortiz and Adam Shapiro. I think this looks fantastic, really really excited to see it. Looks even better than I could have hoped. Enjoy! Here's the new full-length trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs movie, direct from Universal's YouTube: You can also still watch the first teaser trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs here, »

For those not too jaded by a Wachowski sibling project after Jupiter Ascending, their new series, Sense8, is debuting its 12 episodes on Netflix in just a few days (June 5th, to be exact). The series follows 8 individuals from all over the world, who become linked as “sensates” (puns!) both mentally and emotionally. They can access each other’s knowledge, language, and skills, but also each other’s deepest secrets. In the new character trailers below, a little 8 in the corner marks the moment that character becomes connected to another sensate. As they are told, “you are no longer just you, you have 7 other selves.” Naveen Andrews’ character does not seem to be on the 8 though, but some sort of a guide. But what is the end game? And what is this connection supposed to help them do? [caption id="attachment_463145" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Murray Close/Netflix[/caption] You can learn more about each of »
