Walk of Fame Shonda Rhimes Heads To Netflix With These Five Original Series Published 7 months ago on Aug 5, 2018 By Jade Wilson Shonda Rhimes is the queen of television drama. After all, she created Grey’s Anatomy — one of the most popular medical dramas ever produced. And that’s not to mention Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder have also become smash hits. Last year, she announced plans to create and produce eight Netflix original series with her Shondaland production company. We’re excited about these five in particular. “The Residence” If you love politics and American history, then this might be the perfect series for you. The Residence, based on the 2015 nonfiction book by Kate Andersen Brower, discusses the private lives of various United States presidents, their families, and White House staff. If you’ve loved Rhimes’ ABC hit Scandal, then get ready for this next political drama. Wall Street Journal “The Warmth Of Other Suns” Based on the 2010 Pulitzer Prize-winning nonfiction book by Isabel Wilkerson, Rhimes is reuniting with Anna Deavere Smith, who stars in the ABC drama For the People. Smith will adapt the book for the Netflix series about the flight of African-Americans from the Jim Crow South to the North and West. Kelly Mosher via American Theatre Introducing The Bridgerton Family Rhimes is working with Scandal’s Chris Van Dusen to adapt an as-yet-untitled show based on Julia Quinn’s bestselling Bridgerton series of novels. The show will present a feminist take on Regency England romance, discussing the wealthy, sexual, comical, and painfully lonely lives of women and men in London’s high society. If you love historical dramas and Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, then this is the next Netflix series for you. Click 2 Houston “Reset: My Fight For Inclusion And Lasting Change” The #MeToo movement spread like wildfire on social media last year. Rhimes is partnering with Netflix to adapt Ellen Pao’s bestselling memoir into an original series. The show will detail Pao’s life and career and the lawsuit against her former employer for gender discrimination, which led to media scrutiny and presaged the recent Time’s Up and #MeToo movements. Wall Street Journal “Hot Chocolate Thunder” Shonda Rhimes is reuniting with Grey’s Anatomy recurring star Debbie Allen in this upcoming docuseries about the actress/dancer’s holiday ballet. The Netflix series will take viewers behind the scenes to learn how her dance company, Debbie Allen Dance Academy, prepares for its award-winning interpretation of The Nutcracker. While viewers may be excited about her upcoming series, no one is more excited than Rhimes herself. “This is Shonda 2.0.” Los Angeles Times UP NEXT Fans Are Losing Their Minds Over The First Trailer For Jodie Whit...
