Rumor has it, Shonda Rhimes doesn’t think Scandal will last “10 or even 8 seasons” on ABC, but the good news is a few of the popular series’ characters may have inspired a spinoff.
According to PEOPLE, the producer had this to say about Scandal government agency “B613” while recently talking to The Hollywood Reporter:
“I have my own obsessions with B613 that are probably unhealthy. I have like three versions of a B613 spinoff in my head that I obsess about constantly.”
Rhimes is working on several projects at the moment, so a Scandal spinoff may have to stay on the back burner for a while:
“I have some jobs, as you may notice, and not a lot of time to do some new jobs,” said Rhimes, who continues to oversee Grey’s Anatomy as well as her newest drama, How to Get Away with Murder.
We can dream though, can’t we?
The gorgeous actress recently hit up The Tonight Show, but wasn’t herself at all. Playing a game of “Lip Flip” with host Jimmy Fallon, Jen turned into a Bonnaroo fan and Fallon morphed into a super sweet Southern girl.
Things definitely got a little crazy. Check it out in the video above.
Larry Wilmore debuted The Nightly Show on Comedy Central this past Monday, and apparently it got off to a good start.
The series premiere notched 963,000 viewers at 11:30 p.m. and a 0.5 rating among adults 18-49. Any disappointment over Wilmore not cracking 1 million viewers should be taken lightly. The premiere happened on the tail-end of the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday weekend, with a modest 1.2 million lead-in from The Daily Show.
Disappointment? We’d definitely consider that a win! Will you be tuning in?
The upcoming film is directed by Rick Famuyiwa, and is about “a nerdy teenager trying to survive the more dangerous elements of his neighborhood in Inglewood, California,” according to Pitchfork. Rocky plays a supporting role, and can be briefly seen in the trailer above.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the film also features “Odd Future, A$AP Mob, and Joey Bada$$’s Pro Era.” It’s rumored that Vince Staples also appears.
The film will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this year. We’ve got to see this.
