Luvvie Ajayi Is Winning! Her Book “I’m Judging You” Gets Picked Up By Shondaland as a Comedy Series
Shonda Rhimes continuously produces hit TV shows, and she doesn’t have plans of stopping anytime soon. The TV mogul has acquired the rights to Nigerian-born author, Luvvie Ajayi’s book – I’m Judging You: The Do-Better Manual to adapt as a cable comedy series through her company Shondaland and ABC Signature.
I’m Judging You is a laugh-out-loud handbook that uses hilarious commentary in the form of essays and monologues to shed light on some of the most popular and controversial topics of our time ranging from social media do’s & don’ts, to race, gender, pop culture, politics and everything in between.
This monumental moment in Luvvie’s career has been a long time coming. With her blogging career starting as far back as 2003, her site AwesomelyLuvvie.com amassed a tremendous following of about 500,000 fans between her personal twitter feed and the site. Her growth stemmed primarily from her commentary of television shows like Scandal. This is where she initially caught the attention of Shonda Rhimes, who also showed support for Luvvie when she released the book.

Rhimes reigns supreme over Thursday nights on ABC with hit shows like Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy and How To Get Away With Murder all airing on the same day. So I’m Judging You will definitely be heavy on the watch list. Because, why not? I mean, when has Shonda Rhimes or Luvvie ever disappointed?
“I’m Judging You” will be the Rhimes’ first comedy series so it will bring on a different vibe from the exciting melodramatic shows we’re used to getting from her. This partnership between Luvvie and Rhimes is a match made in TV heaven, and we can’t wait to watch!
