Shonda Rhimes seals 8-figure deal with ABC
Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes has signed a new 4-year deal extension with ABC.
The deal is said to be valued at 8 figures.
Well deserved, given how much money she’s likely made for Disney’s flagship TV powerhouse.
This will keep Ms Rhimes at ABC until 2018. With 2 hit shows already on the channel’s primetime lineup (Grey’s Anatomy & Scandal), and at least one more ordered for next season (How To Get Away With Murder), she’ll certainly have enough to keep her busy for another 4 years.Also, keep in mind that, via her production company ShondaLand, Rhimes has and will continue to produce other projects for the studio that she may not necessarily create herself.
Shonda’s also writing a screenplay for a drama titled War Correspondents. The feature film centers around female war correspondents.
