On this week’s episode of Adweek Presents…, we are time warping back to October for Adweek’s Convergent TV Summit.

During the event, we were honored to be joined by legendary writer and mega-producer Shonda Rhimes, who founded her own production company in 2005. She’s best known as the powerhouse behind acclaimed shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder and, most recently, Netflix’s breakout hit Bridgerton.

As part of her recently extended and expanded deal with the streaming service, she’s growing Shondaland into a force to be reckoned with on several new platforms, including virtual reality, gaming, merchandise and live events. 

In this session, hosted by former Adweek editor in chief Stephanie Paterik, Rhimes is joined by Shondaland executives Sandie Bailey and Chris Dilorio as they discuss the company’s new path and the future of the industry. 

So get ready to enter the wide world of Shondaland as Adweek Presents… Shonda Rhimes!
