When I tell you I screamed in excitement upon hearing this news…understatement. We know you are familiar with Shonda Rhimes, but if you are not familiar with Luvvie Ajayi, it’s about time you get acquainted.
Where do we begin? Well, first of all, she is the “word-whisperer” – every piece she types out turns to comedic gold. She’s smart, funny, an HIV/AIDS advocate, and a techie. She has a foundation called The Red Pump Project, and is the Founder and CEO of Awesomely Luvvie and Awesomely Techie. Oh, but we’re not done. Her debut novel, ‘I’m Judging You’ made the New York Times Bestsellers List.

This girl has been putting in serious work, and for that, we admire her a great deal. She says what she means and she means what she says – unapologetically.
After the successful release of ‘I’m Judging You’, many were left wondering what would be next for Ajayi. As predicted by many, the tube was the only thing she hadn’t ventured into yet…and here we are!
I'VE BEEN SITTING ON THIS NEWS. Dream. Come. True. https://t.co/Z3xsGGT1Nv

Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beer’ Shondaland, as well as ABC Studios, are taking Luvvie’s book to the next level. They acquired the rights to turn the “do-better manual” into a comedic television series. This newest project expands ABC’s Shondaland empire to new levels outside of the usual drama series’.
Congratulations to Luvvie, Shonda, ABC and all involved. We love watching you win and can’t wait to support!
