We all recognize the incredible Shonda Rhimes for gifting us with iconic shows like ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ ‘Scandal,’ and ‘Queen Charlotte,’ among others.

However, what many might not have realized is that her film writing credits are equally legendary.

Let’s begin with ‘Crossroads.’ Yes, Shonda Rhimes crafted the script for this film, featuring Britney Spears in her debut as a feature film actress. It also showcased Zoe Saldana before she claimed the title of the only actor in Hollywood with four films surpassing $100 billion. Not to forget Taryn Manning, whose versatile career spans both television and film.

Shonda Rhimes also penned ‘The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement,’ the sequel to the original Anne Hathaway-led movie about an ordinary girl discovering her royal lineage. This sequel also featured Raven Symone.


Perhaps the most surprising gem in Rhimes’ filmography is the made-for-TV biopic, ‘Introducing Dorothy Dandridge.’ This production played a pivotal role in earning Halle Berry her first Golden Globe, Emmy, and SAG win for her portrayal of the late star.
