In a move that should be of absolutely no surprise to anyone, Shonda Rhimes has signed a new 4-year deal extension with the networkshe calls home - ABC - which is said to be valued in the 8-figures!
This will keep Ms Rhimes at ABC until 2018. With 2 hit shows already on the channel's primetime lineup (Grey's Anatomy & Scandal), and at least one more ordered for next season (How To Get Away With Murder), she'll certainly have enough to keep her busy for another 4 years.
Also, keep in mind that, via her production company ShondaLand, Rhimes has and will continue to produce other projects for the studio that she may not necessarily create herself.
She's also returning to her feature film *roots* to write a screenplay for a drama titled War Correspondents, which will center on women war correspondents, for Sony's Columbia Pictures.
