TV POWERHOUSE Shonda Rhimes, creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal, will develop the debut book written by 30-year-old author Luvvie Ajayi into a cable comedy series.
I’m Judging You: The Do Better falls under Shondaland’s overall deal at ABC Studios and its cable division, ABC Signature.
“I’VE BEEN SITTING ON THIS NEWS. Dream. Come. True,” Luvvie wrote on Twitter when the news was announced by deadline.
I’m Judging You is a humorous manual that instructs people on how to do better. Luvvie, creator of the popular AwesomeLuvvie.com blog, first gained the attention of Shonda with her online Scandal recaps.
In September, the book, which reflects Luvvie’s spunky personality and hilarious commentary, documents her thoughts on everything from her personal take on serious issues like racism and sexism to her everyday pet peeves like the obnoxious use of hashtags, made it onto the New York Times best-selling list.
