The five-year megadeal Rhimes signed with Netflix in 2017, worth a reported $100 million, is finally bearing fruit with the upcoming series “Bridgerton,” based on Julia Quinn’s books about a high-society family in Regency-era England and set for a Christmas 2020 premiere, plus “Inventing Anna,” the tale of a real-life Russian con artist (played by Julia Garner) who scammed New York elites, which resumed its shoot in October. Meanwhile, over at ABC, the series that put Rhimes on the map, hospital drama “Grey’s Anatomy,” is still going strong in its 17th season, as is spinoff “Station 19,” currently in its fourth season. Her Netflix series development slate also includes “Pico & Sepulveda,” set in 1840s Los Angeles, and an adaptation of the Kate Andersen Brower novel “The Residence,” about White House support staffers.
