Shonds Rhimes is leaving ABC after inking what’s said to be a blockbuster deal with Netflix! Shonda has an incredible track record for the network creating successful shows like, “Grey’s Anatomy, “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder.” According to TMZ, Shonda signed a multi-year deal to develop exclusive content for Netflix. No word on how much they are paying her, but it’s likely more than she was making at ABC.
This isn’t the first time Netflix has poached top talent from networks. Chuck Lorre, who created “Two and Half Men” and “Big Bang Theory,” is also at the streaming company.
