Shonda Rhimes Signs Deal To Leave ABC ForShonda Rhimes, creator of a string of hits including Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder, has signed an exclusive deal with Netflix, the streaming video company announced Monday. Rhimes’ move marked a major setback for Disney and ABC, which broadcast a string of Rhimes hits. The deal came shortly after Disney landed a blow against Netflix last week by announcing it would stop letting Netflix stream its new movies, and even make it yank some old Disney and Pixar movies, and launch its own streaming services.
