Rhimes working on 8 Netflix shows

Netflix is about to look more and more like Shondaland.

According to Entertainment Weekly the mastermind behind “Scandal” and “Grey’s Anatomy” Shonda Rhimes has a host of new projects in the works for Netflix. With producer Betsy Beers by her side, EW says the duo and their team will set out to create eight new shows for the streaming service, all of which center on diverse stories.

For instance, EW says that one untitled project is “based on the true story of Anna Delvey, the Manhattan socialite/con-woman, as written about in New York Magazine,” while another — “The Warmth of Other Suns” — will be “an adaptation of the Pulitzer-Prize winning Isabel Wilkerson’s novel about African-Americans feeling the Jim Crow South.”

And for Rhimes, telling a vast array stories isn’t something that just happened; instead, it was her mission.

“I wanted the new Shondaland to be a place where we expand the types of stories we tell, where my fellow talented creatives could thrive and make their best work and where we as a team come to the office each day filled with excitement,” Rhime said in a statement, according to EW. “Ted and Cindy and everyone at Netflix have been incredible partners in making that happen. This is Shondaland 2.0.”
