ICYMI: Shonda Rhimes’ Shondaland Inks Deal with Netflix

Shonda Rhimes

Shonda Rhimes, Primetime television’s super hero, has inked a deal with Netflix. And while congratulatory praises are in order for Rhimes as she continues to soar beyond some of the highest peaks, we’re certain Netflix knows they’re really fortunate to have the creator and producer, as well her Shondaland production company, in their corner. Deadline reports that Shondaland will function as a division of Netflix’s in-house studio where Shonda hopes to “evolve as an artist and push the envelope.

Rhimes has been quoted as saying, “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.

The truly legendary titan behind Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder (along with her Shondaland partner Betsy Beers) will develop new work with the streaming giant as they complete their work on #TGIT’s shows (which will remain with home network, ABC).

Hold on to your wigs, y’all. Soon we’ll be getting a whole season’s worth of Shonda’s storytelling in one drop.
