Shonda Rhimes is a Boss Chick — and don’t ever forget it!
The Shondaland head honcho has taken her talents to Netflix, effectively ending her 15 year relationship with ABC. In a multi-year deal with the streaming service Rhimes will produce provocative content with no boundaries. Get. Ready!
“Shondaland’s move to Netflix is the result of a shared plan Ted Sarandos and I built based on my vision for myself as a storyteller and for the evolution of my company. Ted provides a clear, fearless space for creators at Netflix. He understood what I was looking for — the opportunity to build a vibrant new storytelling home for writers with the unique creative freedom and instantaneous global reach provided by Netflix’s singular sense of innovation. The future of Shondaland at Netflix has limitless possibilities,” Shonda said in a statement.
While we’re thrilled for Shonda what does this mean for TGIT? Don’t worry folks, “Scandal”, “How To Get Away With Murder” and “Grey’s Anatomy” are staying put. Plus, Rhimes’ upcoming legal drama “For the People,” and a “Grey’s Anatomy” spinoff that is in preproduction are still slated for ABC.
Shonda stay winning!
