Netflix signs deal with Shondaland

Netflix sent out a press release announcing they have penned a deal with Shonda Rhimes, which will see Shondaland making a home with the streaming service. Rhimes current shows at ABC will continue as is, with most already available on the streaming service in different markets across the globe.

“Shondaland’s move to Netflix is the result of a shared plan Ted Sarandos and I built based on my vision for myself as a storyteller and for the evolution of my company,” said Rhimes

What this may also touch on, is the rumour that Disney is interested in buying Netflix. With Netflix signing deals with Shondaland and Millarworld, an acquisition at this time would bolster Disney’s already impressive catalogue of content.
