Everyone’s talking about… Shonda Rhimes

And this is how we begin the end... #scandal #thisfamilywillneverend

A post shared by Shonda Rhimes (@shondarhimes) on

The Grey’s Anatomy/How To Get Away with Murder/Scandal creator has just signed a massive deal worth $10 million a year with Netflix, meaning we’re about to see a lot more Shondaland TV on Netflix.

Per Rhimes herself:

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.
