According to The Hollywood Reporter, Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers will executive produce. THR says, “Foley and Grunberg came up with the story, with Foley penning the teleplay.”
Toast marks the first half-hour pilot order for Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers’ Shondaland, which had been looking to expand in comedy. [… Toast] was originally developed during the 2014-15 season and was rolled. The two executive produce with Shondaland’s Shonda Rhimeses and Betsy Beers. None will act.
Toast revolves around engaged couple Max and Paige who, over their wedding rehearsal dinner, have their eclectic family and friends give toasts recalling anecdotes about the couple — but flashbacks reveal that the toasts don’t always get it right, as we watch the true story of their complicated, funny and relatable road to marriage. Foley has recurred on Rhimes’ Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal.
