For a while, ABC flirted with the idea of changing the title and was referring to the period drama as “Untitled Shondaland Project.” Apparently, the House of Mouse decided to keep the title, after all.
Still Star-Crossed follows the treachery, palace intrigue, and ill-fated romances of the Montagues and Capulets in the wake of Romeo and Juliet’s tragic fate.
