Shonda Rhimes is readying her ninth Netflix project and it sounds pretty cool.
Notes on Love is an episodic anthology series that will examine the “unexpected, life-changing, euphoric, hilarious, surreal, and all-consuming places where love intersects with our lives.”
The first season will focus on marriage and Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers will produce the whole season and be joined by some pretty big-named executive producers for certain episodes including Norman Lear, Aaron Shure, Steve Martin, Diane Warren, Jenny Han, Lindy West and Ahamefule J. Oluo.
