Gabblers!

Both Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers were recent recipients of The Directors Guild of America’s Diversity Award. However, it’s Rhimes that has expressed an understandable and interesting opinion about it. Check it out!

Shonda Rhimes, the creator of Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, and Private Practice, is one of the most powerful forces in television. And she doesn’t mince words when  something is bothering her.

Her latest beef? The Diversity Award that she and Scandal Executive Producer Betsy Beers were given at the Directors Guild of America Awards Saturday night in Los Angeles.

“When I heard I was getting a Diversity Award, I was really, truly, profoundly honored. I began to get calls from Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, etc., and I was asked to comment on the award. Asked how good I felt about the award. Asked if it made me feel like I was doing the right thing. Asked if it had been a struggle making diversity happen on my cast and crews. While I’m still really and truly profoundly honored to receive this award, but I was also a little pissed off,” Rhimes said. “So was Betsy. So over many, many, many bottles of wine we discussed this.”

“We’re a little pissed off because there still needs to be an award. Like, there’s such a lack of people hiring women and minorities that when someone does it on a regular basis, they are given an award.”

Shonda Sells Another Show!

Posted by on Oct 7, 2013 in Betsy Beers, Blogger: GreysRcksMyWorld, GG Bloggers, Shonda Rhimes | 5 comments

Hey Gabblers!

Shonda continues to prove that she has what it takes when it comes to making TV shows! Check this out!

The Shonda Rhimes train keeps on powering ahead, so you can either get out of the way (assuming you’re in front of it), jump on-board for the ride, or just watch from the platform as it speeds on by.

Via her production company, Shondaland, Rhimes and producing partner Betsy Beers have sold yet another project to ABC – a drama titled Just Rewards, written by Paul Downs Colaizzo, which follows the ups and downs of a bankrupt, 40-something divorcée and her underemployed 20-something neighbors who get by earning reward money by helping to solve unsolved crimes.
