Over the course of nearly 15 years, Shonda Rhimes has become an absolute force to be reckoned with in the television world.

This would include (but is not limited to) Private Practice, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder. All of these shows fall under the umbrella of Shonda Rhimes’s production company, Shondaland.
