Shonda Rhimes is the creator of the TV shows 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Private Practice,' and 'Scandal.'
According to the publisher, the book will be â€śpart memoir, part inspiration, part prescription.â€ť
In a statement announcing the book, Rhimes struck a humorous tone, saying that â€śSimon and Schuster is crazy for giving me a book deal, as I am clearly in no position to be handing out wisdom. I have made a lot of mistakes as a single mother, and as a working mother, and as a sleepless mother, and as a dating mother. And I did all of it while running a bunch of TV shows. So I'm going to write about that and hope my kids don't use it against me in therapy later.â€ť
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the book will center on Rhimesâ€™ family life as she also works to succeed in the world of TV.
Rhimes is the creator, executive producer, and writer for the ABC series â€śGreyâ€™s Anatomy,â€ť which is currently airing its 10th season, a â€śGreyâ€™sâ€ť spin-off â€śPrivate Practice,â€ť which aired from 2007 to 2013, and â€śScandal,â€ť which is currently airing its third season. She has been nominated for three Emmy Awards for producing and writing, respectively, for â€śGreyâ€™s Anatomyâ€ť and won a Golden Globe for â€śGreyâ€™s.â€ť
