What is sleep when you’re Shonda Rhimes? The primetime television pioneer, best known for creating some of TV’s fan favorite shows including Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder and Grey’s Anatomy, will produce a black migration mini-series for FX. The drama is a film adaption of Isabel Wilkerson’s “The Warmth of Other Suns,” the New York Times best selling novel that follows the migration stories of African Americans from 1915 to 1970 who fled the south for northern cities.
The series will be produced by Rhimes’ and partner Betsey Beers through their ABC Studios-based Shondaland production company, along with FX Productions, ABC Studio’s and their new boutique division ABC Signature.
Now that’s how you build an empire. Go Shonda!
