There is no stopping Shonda Rhimes. ABC recently released its list of renewals and cancellations. All of the Shondaland shows have been renewed. The OG Shondaland show Grey’s Anatomy will be gearing up for its 12th season. The exciting, political-drama Scandal will be moving into its 5th season. And the new kid on the block, How To Get Away With Murder, will be going into its 2nd season.
Shonda also managed to get another show ordered. The new Shondaland series, The Catch, will be about a fraud investigator who is about to be defrauded herself by her fiance. The drama will star Mireille Enos, who played Sarah Linden in the ABC series “The Killing.” But that’s not all…
Shondaland is also getting together with writer and director Dee Rees to adapt Isabel Wilkerson’s The Warmth of Other Suns as a limited series for FX. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the historical study, published in 2010, chronicles the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities, in search of a better life. This is sure to be good.
Shonda Rhimes is one busy woman. She deserves all the success.
