Shonda Rhimes can't be stopped. Not content with having created “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” and executive producing “How To Get Away With Murder,” some of televisions most talked about series, Rhimes has also decided to publish a book.
“Year of Yes,” Rhimes’ first book, will be released this November, announced Simon & Schuster in a press release today. According to the statement, in December 2013, Rhimes was a challenged to say yes to everything for an entire year, and the book will chronicle that "transformative" year.
“Saying yes for an entire year turned out to be one of the most amazing decisions I have ever made,” Rhimes said in a statement released by Simon & Schuster. “It was also a little insane, a lot terrifying and sometimes wildly embarrassing.”
Originally, Rhimes had no intention of sharing the experience. “However, once Simon & Schuster asked me, I had no choice—what else could I say but yes?” Rhimes said.
“It’s mind-boggling that the mega-talented Shonda Rhimes, one of the most admired and accomplished women in Hollywood, would feel the need to challenge her status quo,” Marysue Ricci, vice president and editor-in-chief of Simon & Schuster, said in a statement. “It’s easy to imagine this book inspiring a movement and we couldn’t be more excited to publish it at Simon & Schuster.”
This fall, Rhimes will executive produce “The Catch,” a new ABC drama about a female fraud investigator whose fiancé trying to con her.
