Shonda Rhimes’ creator of our favorite #TGIT hit series, Grays Anatomy, Scandal and How To Get Away with Murder has signing to Netflix. .
Yes, Shonda Rhimes’ home ABC, for the past 15 years is coming to an end as she will create other content exclusively for Neflix’s.
I’m sure many of you are thinking this is about to hurt ABC, but not quite yet.
While Shonda is dealing with this transition “How to Get Away with Murder” and a planned spinoff of “Grey’s Anatomy,” will remain at the Disney network. ABC Studios also retains contracts with several of the top writers on Rhimes’ programs — such as Pete Nowalk, who created “How to Get Away With Murder.”
The announcement may come as a shocker because it took place one week after Disney announced a launch of their own streaming service to better compete with Netflix.
If this transition means that Scandal will not be canceled and we’ll get more of Olivia Pope then I’m all for it!
