Nigerian writer Luvvie Ajayi’s debut book, I’m Judging You: The Do Better Manual has caught the eye of author and producer, Shonda Rhimes.
Shonda Rhimes’s Shondaland, along with ABC Signature Studios, have acquired rights to the book and plan to develop it as a cable comedy series. The project will fall under Shondaland’s overall deal at ABC Studios.
I’m Judging You is a humorous manual that instructs people on how to do better. Ajayi, creator of the AwesomelyLuvvie.com blog, first gained the attention of Rhimes with her online Scandal recaps.
With drama series like Scandal, How To Get Away With Murder and Grey’s Anatomy at ABC, Shondaland has been looking to expand its portfolio into comedy.
