Mogul Spotlight: Shonda Rhimes

shonda-rhimes

American Screen Writer, Producer and Director Shonda Rhimes is Hollywood’s golden girl right now. She has owned Thursday nights on ABC since 2005 with the hits Grey’s Anatomy still running, Private Practice, 2007-2013 and the serial thriller Scandal 2012-Present. 

A Chicago native she attended Dartmouth College for undergrad and attained her master in screen writing from the University of Southern California. In 1999 she wrote on of my favorite movies “Introducing Dorothy Dandridge”. She is one of my inspirations because right now I am coveting her life. I saw her production company ShondaLand’s offices on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” and she has everything I want! A space to write and produce and a beautiful place for her children to be near her while she is working. Ahh, the American Dream!

Season 10 of Grey’s Anatomy is scheduled to premiere September 2013 and Season 3 of Scandal is set to premiere this fall on Thursday, October 3. I’ll be there with my twins in tow:)!

Go Shonda Go!
