Shonda Rhimes “Personal Quotes”

I don’t understand why people don’t understand that the world of TV should look like the world outside of TV.
[re troubles with Grey’s Anatomy (2005) cast where she had to learn…] how to be a boss and a leader versus somebody who was like, ‘Holy crap, I get to write a show every week.’ But could I have lived without that lesson? Absolutely.
I was writing a hospital show for a very long time, and that became all that anybody thought that I could write. It’s not that I want to do [for example, a female-spy show] because people don’t think of me as doing it, but when I do say that’s what I want to do next, and some network exec says: ‘Really? Can’t you do one of your romance triangle-y things?’ I want to strangle them. A romance triangle-y thing is not a show.
