*Shonda Rhimes is about to make the jump from television to feature films.
According to Deadline, Shondaland’s Rhimes and Betsy Beers (the producers behind all three of ABC’s Thursday primetime dramas), are teaming with The Mark Gordon Company’s Mark Gordon to co-produce “My Husband’s Ex-Wife” for the big screen.
The comedy follows a young woman who is married to an older man and is newly pregnant. She finds herself dealing with a host of issues new to her, including the impact of her husband’s ex-wife being diagnosed with cancer.
Gordon, Rhimes and Beers will serve as the producers. The script is from Michelle Lirtzman, who has been a writer on Shondaland’s “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal.”
Gordon, also a producer on “Grey’s,” will finance the movie.
This will be Rhimes’ first feature as a producer.
