Shonda Rhimes Wants to Teach How to Be a Television Writer

Shonda Rhimes has already shown us how to save a life, handle a scandal, and get away with murder, but now she’s teaching what she knows best — writing for television.

EW can exclusively share that the prolific writer and producer is ready to share her secrets to success as the latest famous face to teach a MasterClass course. The Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy creator is following in the footsteps of other luminaries, including as Aaron Sorkin and Werner Herzog.

For $90, Rhimes will take students through more than five hours of lessons, teaching them how to craft a script, sell a pilot, and run a writers’ room. Ahead of the announcement, EW chatted with Rhimes about what to expect from her course, why this is such a great time to be a television writer, and whom she wants to take a MasterClass from.
