Thank Shonda Rhimes for taking care of this year’s Christmas list.
TV’s most powerful writer has penned her first book, titled “Year of Yes,” about the 12 months when she accepted everything that came her way. Publisher Simon & Schuster announced that Rhimes’ memoir will arrive in bookstores this November.
“Saying yes for an entire year turned out to be one of the most amazing decisions I have ever made,” Rhimes commented in a statement. “It was also a little insane, a lot terrifying and sometimes wildly embarrassing. So this is not a story I ever planned to share with anyone. However, once Simon & Schuster asked me, I had no choice — what else could I say but yes?”
S&S Editor in Chief Marysue Rucci added, “It’s mind-boggling that the mega-talented Shonda Rhimes, one of the most admired and accomplished women in Hollywood, would feel the need to challenge her status quo. ‘Year of Yes’ is surprising, hilarious, poignant, and accessible.”
In addition to showrunning “Scandal” and “Grey’s Anatomy” and producing “How to Get Away With Murder,” Rhimes will also executive produce the new crime drama “The Catch,” starring Mireille Enos, this fall. Watch “The Catch” trailer below.
