Shonda Rhimes

Teaches Writing for Television

Make Great Television

When Shonda Rhimes pitched Grey’s Anatomy she got so nervous she had to start over. Twice. Since then, she has created and produced TV’s biggest hits. In her class, Shonda teaches you how to create compelling characters, write a pilot, pitch your idea, and stand out in the writers’ room. You’ll also get original pilot scripts, pitch notes, and series bibles from her shows. Welcome to Shondaland.


Watch, listen, and learn as Shonda teaches you how to write, pitch, and create a hit TV show.


A downloadable workbook accompanies the class with lesson recaps and supplemental materials.


Upload videos to get feedback from the class. Shonda will also respond to select student questions.

Shonda Rhimes is a Master teacher. She's informative, yet I could feel her vulnerability... My classmates are in for an exciting experience.
