After graduating from USC, Rhimes, like so many other new college grads, was an unemployed screenwriter in Hollywood.  She worked on the 1995 documentary “Hank Aaron: Chasing the Dream,” which won the Peabody Award in 1995.

Rhimes was hired to write the 1999 HBO movie “Introducing Dorothy Dandridge.” In 2001, Rhimes wrote “Crossroads,” Britney Spears’ debut film. Rhimes next worked on writing the sequel to “The Princess Diaries.” Rhimes has often talked about the wonderful experience she had writing  2004’s ” The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement.” She especially enjoyed working with Julie Andrews. Rhimes wrote her first TV pilot for ABC in 2003, but the network turned it down.

In 2003, Rhimes started working on a new project. That project was “Grey’s Anatomy.” ABC bought it on a pitch and scheduled it as a midseason replacement in 2005. “Grey’s Anatomy” debuted as a mid-season replacement in March 2005. By the end of the first season, “Grey’s Anatomy” had 20 million viewers each week. In May 2006, ABC announced plans to relocate “Grey’s Anatomy”  to Thursdays to anchor the network’s Thursday evening programming. In 2007, Rhimes created and produced the “Grey’s Anatomy” spin-off series “Private Practice.” In May 2012, ABC picked up “Private Practice” for the 2012–13 television season with 13 episodes. The series finale aired on January 22, 2013.

In May 2011, ABC ordered Rhimes’ pilot script “Scandal” to series. Kerry Washington starred as Olivia Pope, a political crisis management expert. “Scandal” ran for seven seasons debuting in April 2012 with its finale episode in April 2019. In December 2013, ABC ordered a pilot for a new Rhimes series, “How to Get Away with Murder.” Actress Viola Davis joined the cast as the lead character in February 2014. It was officially picked up to series on May 8, 2014. In May 2019, ABC renewed the series for a sixth and final season, which premiered on September 26, 2019.

On August 14, 2017, Netflix announced that it had entered into a development deal with Rhimes, under which all of her future productions will be Netflix Original series. It is a multi-year, exclusive deal that is on top of the fact that the streamer had already bought the U.S. streaming rights to all past episodes of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal.”

In June 2018, Netflix announced that the first project under the deal will be an adaptation of the New York Magazine story “How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People, ” which was written by Jessica Pressler. Rhimes’ version of the story will be called “Inventing Anna,” and will be a 10-part series starring “Veep’s” Anna Chlumsky as a journalist (presumably based on Pressler) investigating a German heiress, played by “Ozark’s” brilliant Julia Garner. “Orange Is the New Black’s” Laverne Cox and “Scandal’s” Katie Lowes also star. Filming of “Inventing Anna” reportedly started in October 2019, so presumably, the production had time to wrap before the coronavirus pandemic stalled film and television production (and everything else).

In 2017, Rhimes told E! that she and “Grey’s Anatomy” star Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) have a longstanding deal to do the show as long as Pompeo wants. “Ellen [Pompeo] and I have a pact that I’m going to do the show as long as she’s going to do the show. So, the show will exist as long as both of us want to do it. If she wants to stop, we’re stopping. So, I don’t know if we’ll see 600, but I want to keep it feeling fresh. As long as there are fresh stories to tell and as long as we’re both excited about the stories being told, we’re in. So, we’ll see where that takes us.” As of 2020, “Grey’s Anatomy” is scheduled to run through the 2020-2021 season, though that is expected to be delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. For what it’s worth, Kim Raver, Kevin McKidd, and Camilla Luddington have three-year contracts with “Grey’s Anatomy” as of the 2020-2021 season. Shonda Rhimes Net Worth This is leading fans to speculate that Rhymes and Pompeo have a three-year plan for ending “Grey’s Anatomy.” There is no cold hard evidence of this rumor.
