NEW YORK (AP) — Megaproducer Shonda Rhimes is increasing her real estate on ABC.

The network says it has agreed to make "The Catch," a new series by Rhimes about a fraud investigator who is about to be defrauded herself by her fiance. The drama will star Mireille Enos, who played Sarah Linden in the ABC series "The Killing."

Rhimes is already responsible for ABC's entire Thursday night lineup of "Grey's Anatomy," ''Scandal" and "How to Get Away With Murder." Each of those series has been renewed.

Another new ABC entry, "The Muppets," is a contemporary, documentary-style comedy that promises to explore the Muppets' personal lives and workplace aspirations.

The broadcast networks are finalizing plans for next season in advance of presenting their lineups to advertisers next week in New York.
