As Ryan Murphy makes his Netflix original debut this week with The Politician, the streaming giant’s other major talent with an overall deal, Shonda Rhimes, is readying her next project: Notes on Love, a new original episodic anthology series under Shondaland’s overall deal.
The series will range across genres and explore the unexpected, life-changing, euphoric, hilarious, surreal, and all-consuming places where love intersects with our lives. Each installment comes straight from the unique lens of a prolific creative, including (among others to be named) Norman Lear with writing partner Aaron Shure, Steve Martin, Diane Warren, Jenny Han, real-life married duo Lindy West & Ahamefule J. Oluo, and Shonda Rhimes.
The first season will offer up stories about where love and marriage meet, specifically, examining what marriage is, what it means, and how it’s changing.
Series Executive Producers include Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers, with each contributing writer exec-producing their own episodes.
