Personal Quote:

It's superinsulting that because Olivia [in Scandal (2012)] is a woman, and the girl who wrote Grey's Anatomy (2005) wrote this, it must be for chicks. Like if it's geared for women, it's somehow not as serious as if it's geared for men. See more »

Trivia:

In 2013, she and her Shondaland company partner Betsy Beers were named co-winners of the 2014 Directors Guild of America Diversity Award. See more »
