In a era of television that has seen networks and executives sticking with what has worked in the past (reboots, etc), it’s no surprise that a figure with as much primetime cred as Shonda Rhimes should be a pretty safe bet for launching a new series.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock your entire life and have no clear grasp of what TV is, you’re probably aware that the world of small screen entertainment, like so many other places, is predominantly a man’s world. But the times are a-changing, at least in very specific areas.
Grey’s Anatomy is going to look a lot different when it returns for Season 12. Recently, Shonda Rhimes revealed that Grey’s Anatomy will be just fine without McDreamy and with a bigger focus on Meredith. Here's what she had to say.
No stranger to getting rid of major characters, Grey’s Anatomy broke many fans’ hearts last season when Shonda Rhimes killed off McDreamy. When Season 12 starts rolling, the series will be going through a time jump, and it's got a lot to do with his death.
Formerly, Dempsey, who played Dr. Derek Shepherd on the long-running series, has stated he was totally shocked by his character’s ultimate fate. But this week, showrunner Shonda Rhimes has stated Dempsey wanted to leave the drama.
Shonda Rhimes has done quite well for ABC. The prolific producer has three dramas currently airing: Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy and How To Get Away With Murder. Now, she’ll have a fourth, The Catch, hitting the schedule.
ABC is making more moves to cement itself as a leader in dramas. The network just ordered six new dramas for the 2015-2016 television season, and Shondaland’s The Catch is one of them.
TV mega-producer Shonda Rhimes already has her hands full with a ratings-heavy monopoly on ABC’s Thursday night programming, and her company Shondaland has landed The Killing star Mireille Enos for its next dramatic thriller pilot.
One of TV’s most verbally vicious behind-the-scenes battles has been the ongoing spat between Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes and the series’ former star Katherine Heigl. Heigl responded to Rhimes' recent bout of crap-talking, and it probably isn't what you'd expect.
Shonda Rhimes is one of the most powerful women on television. Katherine Heigl, after a burst in the movie realm, is back on television. So, does that mean we’ll get to see the women combine forces again someday? No. We will not ever see the two of them work together again.
Alright guys, I think it’s time to admit that Shonda Rhimes is kind-of a superwoman. The powerful TV mogul has three—count ‘em—TV shows airing on networks this fall, but despite her busy schedule, the writer, showrunner and producer has decided to delve into the world of acting, as well. On Monday, it was confirmed that Rhimes will appear on an upcoming episode of Fox’s comedy, The Mindy Project.

Following an erroneous report that an actor named Eric West had been cast to replace Columbus Short in Scandal, series creator Shonda Rhimes has gone on (Twitter) record to debunk the news, stating that she's never heard of Eric West and confirming without a shadow of a doubt that Harrison is not being recast. Ever.
The Harrison plotline was one of the most exciting stories from the finale, and became a great point of speculation for fans, especially after showrunner Shonda Rhimes capably avoided answering any questions about the character’s fate. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the character will be getting a happy ending. Over the weekend, actor Columbus Short, who plays Harrison in the series, confirmed he will not be returning for Season 4 of ABC’s drama.
