Shonda Rhimes spoke about the reason why she left ABC in 2017 to join Netflix. The producer stated that she was constantly engaged in battles with the network, which is owned by Disney. While she made a lot of money for the network and herself, they would consistently fight over the content, budget and even an ad that she and the stars of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder” made for former presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton. She was provided with all-inclusive passes to Disneyland for herself and her nanny. However, she wanted another for her sister and asked for the same. The network kept stating that they don’t do this and finally gave in. When she did go to the park, the ticket did not work. When Rhimes called a “high-ranking executive,” they asked her, “Don’t you have enough?” Soon enough, she moved to Netflix.
