If Rhimes’ slate of shows for Netflix is any indication, the five-year mega-deal she signed with the streamer in 2017 doesn’t just net her a whopping pile of money (a reported $100 million), it gives her the freedom to make shows far afield of her long-running hits “How to Get Away with Murder,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and its spinoff, “Station 19.” Her first show for Netflix, “Bridgerton,” due in 2020, is about a high-society family in 19th-century England. Future projects include “Inventing Anna,” a drama about Russian con artist recently convicted for scamming New York elites; “Pico & Sepulveda,” set in 1840s L.A.; and an adaptation of the Kate Andersen Brower novel “The Residence,” about the staffers who support the family in the White House.
