    The woman behind Grey's Anatomy and Scandal is leaving the world of terrestrial TV to join Netflix.

    Veteran producer Shonda Rhimes had been at ABC Studios for the last 15 years.

    Her company Shondaland will now begin producing new shows for Netflix but Rhimes will stay involved in her current broadcast series with ABC.

    "Shonda Rhimes is one of the greatest storytellers in the history of television," Netflix's Ted Sarandos said in a statement.

    "Her work is gripping, inventive, pulse-pounding, heart-stopping, taboo-breaking television at its best. I've gotten the chance to know Shonda and she's a true Netflixer at heart."
