Shonda Rhimes is leaving ABC and is taking her talents over to Netflix!
She said in a statement, “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.”
But don’t worry, ABC will still continue to air Shonda’s current shows, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder on their network.
