The creator of hit shows Bridgerton, Grey's Anatomy, How to Get Away With Murder, and Inventing Anna (phew!), Shonda Rhimes, has a new project in the works. As if she hasn’t given us enough already, she’s bringing a new murder mystery series to Netflix, and it looks seriously juicy. Here’s everything we know about The Residence so far!
Rhimes and her production company Shondaland can truly do it all, from romance to heartbreaking drama (no, we’re still not over the death of McDreamy)—so we have seriously high hopes for this new mystery series.
Rhimes will be producing the upcoming series, alongside Shondaland alum and fellow producer/showrunner Paul William Davies, and it looks set to be a real binge-watch.

Everything we know about 'The Residence': Shonda Rhimes' latest Netflix project
The series will be called The Residence, and it’s based on the bestselling novel, ‘The Residence: Inside The Private World Of The White House’ by Kate Andersen Brower.
The book details the behind-the-scenes stories of what it’s like to work in the White House, giving in-depth anecdotes and accounts from outside the inner circle, from Butlers, maids, and electoral staff within the iconic building.
The series has an intriguing murder mystery twist, turning it into an exciting White House whodunnit.
As Netflix writes in the synopsis: “132 rooms. 157 suspects. One dead body. One wildly eccentric detective. One disastrous State Dinner. The Residence is a screwball whodunnit set in the upstairs, downstairs, and backstairs of the White House, among the eclectic staff of the world's most famous mansion.” We're thinking The West Wing, but with murder?
The show will span over eight episodes, all landing on Netflix. Sadly, we don't have a release date yet, nor any cast info—but given the Rhimes' past casting choices (we're totally not jealous of anyone who may be dating Regé-Jean Page...), we have no doubt that there will be some incredible names joining the project.
You’ll be the first to know as soon as we know more—and at least we have Bridgerton season 2 to tide us over until then!
