Shonda Rhimes

Over Thanksgiving Break I discovered the television show Scandal. It’s created by Shonda Rhimes who is also the creator of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “How to Get Away with Murder”. All three are amazing shows. On Thursday nights, Twitter becomes a giant “Scandal” chat room, fans of the show dispatching around 200,000 tweets per episode. A good portion of these tweets contain “OMG.” Now the same goes for “How to get Away with Murder”. Shonda is running the show(s) at ABC!

Shonda is one of the most powerful African-American female show runner in television. She has three hit television shows on back to back to back on Thursday nights. Rhimes oversees around 550 actors, writers, crew members and producers. The televisions in her office and home are connected to a system that allows her to watch real-time editing by her editors. Basically she is AWESOME. The End.
