ABC Nabs Baghdad-Set Military Drama Project From Shondaland and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Writer

ABC has nabbed a Baghdad-set military drama project from “Grey’s Anatomy” veteran Zoanne Clack and Shonda Rhimes’ Shondaland banner.

The untitled show is set circa 2004 among an U.S. Army Medevac team who work out of a base camp in the Iraqi capital. The series revolves around team members who “get on each other’s nerves, sleep with the wrong people, navigate ‘office’ politics and party like there’s no tomorrow.”

Clack is writing the script for ABC Studios and Shondaland. Clack, Rhimes and Shondaland’s Besty Beers are exec producing for ABC Studios, where Shondaland is based.

Clack has worked her way up the ranks at “Grey’s Anatomy” since that show’s inception, rising from story editor to exec producer. She’s repped by CAA and manager Alan Rautbort at Circle of Confusion.

Shondaland has two comedy projects and another drama in the development pipeline this year at ABC.
