Shonda Rhimes Announces Shondaland Audio with iHeartMedia
ICM Partners client Shonda Rhimes is bringing her magnetic storytelling prowess from the screen to the podcast world, partnering with iHeartMedia to launch Shondaland Audio.
The Emmy-nominated producer and writer will executive produce a lineup of iHeartRadio Originals on Shondaland Audio over the course of the next three years, blending new storytelling formats to share tales that are equal parts captivating and reflective.
“Podcasting continues to see tremendous growth and I’m excited to partner with iHeartMedia as Shondaland expands its storytelling journey into this medium which has seemed to usher in a unique sense of boldness, intimacy and connection,” said Rhimes.
Shondaland Audio isn’t Rhimes’ first foray into podcasting. In 2017, Shondaland launched Katie’s Crib, a weekly podcast following “Scandal” and “Waitress” actress Katie Lowes where she shared intimate conversations about the joys, pains, and hilarity of new motherhood with guests.
Rhimes will oversee development and Sandie Bailey, Chief Digital and Design Officer, will manage day-to-day operations.
