Shonda Rhimes Producing Teen Targetted Sci-Fi Trhiller Mila 2.0 For ABC

by on October 30, 2012

Shonda Rhimes (Creator of Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy) is all set to produce a new show for ABC called Mila 2.0. It’s a science fiction thriller based on Debra Driza’s Young Adult book Mila 2.0.

Rhimes has teamed up with producing partner Betsy Beers, and Disney trained screenwriter David DiGilo, who is writing the sequel to Tron: Legacy.

The Hollywood Reporter provided this plot synposis:

 “a thriller about a young woman who discovers that she’s a Mobile Intel Life-like Android, or MILA, an experiment in artificial intelligence created by the U.S. government and her scientist mother who kidnapped her when she was found to have human emotions.”

Rhimes is a master at showcasing female characters who female audiences relate to. However the shows she currently produces for ABC are targeted primarily toward adults.

Do you think the show will air on the ABC network, or on ABC Family which is geared more toward families and teens?
