Luvvie Ajayi’s “I’m Judging You” Set To Become Shondaland’s First Comedy Series

Shonda Rhimes isn't cutting corners for her new comedy series

Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, How To Get Away With Murder and now I’m Judging You? You got that right. Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beer’s Shondaland recently acquired the rights to Luvvie Ajayi’s debut novel, I’m Judging You: The Do Better Manual to develop a cable comedy series. The series, which will be part of Shondaland’s overall deal with ABC, according to Deadline, will be Shondaland’s first foray into comedy (ABC previously passed on Shondaland’s proposed project with Insecure’s Issa Rae. Sadly.)

The Nigerian-American writer of the New York Times bestseller, Luvvie Ajayi first got noticed by Shonda for her with her online Scandal recaps, then Rhimes revealed she was reading the book and the rest is history yet to be made. Her book, I’m Judging You is a hilarious guide to doing better — a novel you might need to bump up to the top of your reading list.

Luvvie has been totally stoked about this news as she shared on Twitter last night.

We might not get to see the show anytime soon but we’re still pretty excited at this development too.
