And while at usc rimes was hired as an intern by debra martin chase who was prominent black producer she also worked at denzel washington's company monday entertainment so after she graduated rimes was actually an unemployed script writer in hollywood and to make ends meet.

Halle berry. get out. I didn't realize that she colorado so interesting. Oh wait till you hear the the plethora of things that she's worked on.

But you have heard of her next project in two thousand and one rhymes wrote the debut film of pop singer. Britney spears the starring zoe saldana and taryn. Manning crossroads everybody.

It's it's sometimes you just want a nice story about friendship road trimming going on a road trip and having a nice time and may be hitting up a karaoke joint. Heck yeah and singing. I love rock and roll. That's all i'm saying is that maybe it's for them. I think lauren has actually seen crossroads. I have felt you know. She wrote that and then the next thing that she worked on in two thousand four was the sequel to the princess. Diaries called the princess diaries. Two royal engagement. Get out. yeah. I didn't realize that she was so like a dummy. I just assumed like shonda rhimes right out. The gate was grey's anatomy but apparently she was introduced are obsolete reduce. So she's working on all these film things in two thousand three. She actually wrote her first tv pilot. Abc it was about young female war correspondents but the network. Turn it down. You know what they didn't turn down ask project. So here's where sean hillen comes in sean. Billion is the name of rhymes production company shine million and its logo also referred to the shows that she has produced an also to rimes herself. So when we say shaun d land.

"shonda" Discussed on KCRW
"The crown has landed on my head that way, not a killer. This is the way Yeah, to leave. The killer wasn't offered before me. If you're trying to curse you can't pull shirt. We have so many disasters bombarding us right now. Today, We're gonna talk about Bridge or Tim, one of the hottest shows on Netflix. Right now hot in various ways. We'll talk about that. In less than a month, more than 60 million homes streamed it. Naturally, a second season is already in the works. It is a Shonda Rhimes production. Richardson is set in London during the early 18 hundreds, and it follows the Bridget in family during the social season in which well to do young ladies are presented from marriage. Today is a most important day. And for some, a terrifying one. But today's the day London's marriage minded Mrs are presented to Her Majesty. The Queen. May God have mercy on their souls. Well, we've seen this type of drama in countless Jane Austen remakes. But this show is different in some key ways, namely, it is multiracial. Joining us to talk about Bridget Tin is Melanie McFarland, TV critic for Salon. Hi. Hi. Thanks for having me great to have you. Well, this really is the talk of well the talk of a lot talk of social media. And how did it become such a viral sensation? Well, I think there was already a lot of high expectation around the show for two reasons. One. It's one of very few of any adaptations of what is very much you know. It's a romantic novel. I mean, it's It's part of like the romance novel is just kind of generally looked down upon in literature. There are various reasons for that, and it's not right. But unfortunately, it's kind of a fact. So the fact that this is a serious that is being adapted. I think that already brought a lot of heat with it. And the second thing is Shonda Rhimes got a huge deal that killed her away from ABC and landed her Netflix and this is her first release with Netflix. And so I think a lot of people were curious. You see what that would look like, and it's very steamy. As a Shonda Rhimes production is it's d me? Yes, but I think one thing that Shonda Rhimes does really well in her Syriza is to show the world as she would like to see it, you know, And as she does see it in all of her production, she does have an element of inclusive casting now. With Bridger 10. The way that it's executed is in my opinion, not the best on we can talk about that a little bit more. But she also has its very fantastical way of looking at love, You know, even in Gray's, You know, all of the relationships are in some ways, you know, Even the breakups are, you know, hyper dramatic and kind of hyper fantastic. And here you have this very polite society. You know, with this, you know, all of the glamour of, you know, Regency all around it. To have Shonda Rhimes presented Ryan's production of Granted. It wasn't created by her. It was created by Chris Van Dusen, but to have her name attached to something like that. I think that there was a lot of expectation and for a lot of people, it exceeded those expectations of what a Shonda Rhimes Netflix production could look like. So you notice it from the get go. The first episode you see that The Queen herself is black Queen Charlotte and then later on the main romantic interest, the Duke Duke of Hastings. He is black and Quite fetching if I may say, and but that's not commented on until a while into the series, the multiracial nature of this and I just want to play a clip of a conversation between the Duke and the woman who raised him. About that, because this I think this is the first time that they talk about it. We would to separate societies divided by color until the king fell in love with one of us. I love your grace conquers.

The 5 biggest Netflix original series have been revealed
"Netflix. Says these are it's five most-watched original series now. This one is weird to me because we were talking the other day about mandalorian. How it's a real flagship series for disney. Plus it's generated subscribers and big budget and all the rest and we were curious where like we'll netflix's has been around for a while. What is their flagship stuff. And so i. I thought of stranger things i also thought about some of the money. They paid for a lot of those comedy specials I wasn't the the escobar show. What was that called. What norcal narcos was that. Another one yes. Ozark is very good. Okay oh sorry anyway. They've done them as done them. But i saw this list and this list kind of surprise a lot of shows. I never watched or heard of for their top five. Most watched shows and well some of them are recent. Which kind of explains you know. Maybe i'm not necessarily watching him. So some of them are recent but number of coming in at number five with sixty three million viewers by the way in order to be viewer. Show on netflix. All used to do is watch two minutes really just so you know that's the threshold while two minutes which for a series. It's kinda crazy to say you watch the series if you only watch two minutes. But that's the metric that they're using they They got this deal With the former the former producer maker of grey's anatomy scandal. What is her name. Rhymes shonda shonda rhimes. Anyway they produce this show. Renton and sixty. Three million people watched it came out recently. And never heard of yeah. See you've never heard of it. I've never i mean. I don't think it's targeted at us. By the way if you scroll down a little bit oh we don't see image for some reason but if you did see the image you would know it is not targeted at you. Okay and then you go or maybe you feel that that's targeted at you. Don't alley brought from sean to land. Who brought you grazing so her. Production companies called sean dillon. She signed one hundred. Fifty million dollar deal with netflix to make some content and this is one of them. That's coming in number filing number four tiger king. This one i heard of but i never watched. Did you watch that. no i'm with you. I've heard many things about it. Good and bad. So when i saw this have a big number for viewership coming in at number four. I believed it. Because i heard the chatter on social media right around the time. When a lockdown lifestyle was taking off it was a lot of tiger king talk. So i i understand that one. Go number three number three stranger things. That's the other one that i had heard about seeing some of the promotions. Seizing three was the top of the bunch. Sixty four million you can see. Some of these are pretty close. Scroll down to number two this one money heist which is a translation. This was a spanish show that i sure you've never heard of but huge in the spanish speaking world is it. Yeah i've seen The hero image on netflix But i haven't watched it. Yeah i guess it would be subtitles if you watched it. Yeah yeah and then coming. In at number one. The witcher seventy six million. Did you know this. Did you watch this I believe this was a really popular show. I have not watched it yet. You see that's going though to lot of. We did not watch it and we're netflix subscribers. So it's kind of. It's a bit interesting. Yeah but we don't watch anything really. I don't watch enough stuff to even say. Maybe this stuff is amazing. But if you ever if you were curious like what are the statistics of a popular show on netflix. This should give you an idea. Between sixty and eighty million between sixty and eighty million viewers is a hit considered a hit original for net flicks. I'd be curious what the mandalorian pulled off. Because i feel like there's a different level that's why i feel like is a big threat to netflix's model the disney's powerhouse in

I think of Katie and Matt and always will. I don't care what anybody says. What's that? Spade showed Jason the Spade show? I love when comedians Compete with each other, and that's what itwas they were always competing for the funniest punch line, and I thought it made things really good. Let's have you watched spades new show on Netflix before we take a break. I have not watched that. But you know what I am watching because I realized I actually do have HBO. Max s O. That happened. That's why I was able to watch Wonder Woman 1984, but they also have all of the seasons of the Larry Sanders Show.

House of ho show that does seem to exist primarily to make about the name. Ho shonda for asians. Everyone knows getting. It's it's a fun show. Show that Is definitely worth talking about. And we have some great people talk about it with us first of all our friends. Our colleague Our collaborator jammu. Who is producer of the podcasts southern friday and the forthcoming movie daughter and has the morgan with fillon myself in fill one. I don't know a little bit of a book project which we can talk about some other time and welcome to the podcast jess. Thank talk about this. Yes you are not alone. We would also love to welcome to they. Call bruce both you guys. First time right hon win. Who is the senior culture editor at salon and co host of good pop culture club. Another podcast in our Podcast family so welcome to the show. Yeah a happy to be here. I'm yeah shocked that it's taken so long for me. Ask but i feel like this is the one i meant to be on me. We definitely we definitely asked to vietnamese american women to be on the pike. Ask very specifically to talk about this show. And i like han when i asked you. I may have been like kind of presumptuous. And that like you know you're you're an entertainment journalist. Who's vietnamese american. I was like. I just assumed that you had watched you like interested and watch watched house of hope when i asked you. I presume that was true that you did and so and so. That's why you're like. Yeah i'll be on the on the podcast. It was funny because you know. I should've expected it and yet you asked me. I was like oh. Of course. Because i'm actually from houston perfect practically a ho hos and they were none of them though. 'cause toes what to private school system so we should say that house of hose on hbo. Max it is a Reality television series in the vein of all those shows that you that no one wants a care to admit to watch like the cardiac shahs of sunset and The real housewives that genre But it specifically focusing on a very wealthy vietnamese american family in houston Have i covered all the bases. I think pretty much. I mean know we we can say that the the cast of characters is What you might expect for a family drama whether fictional or not set in an asian context right you've got sort of the patriarch matriarch the siblings they all have different dramas individually collectively. They gathered together. Eat a lot basically. This is the nonfiction crazy rich issue. Because that's exactly what what was clearly developed to be right right right. It's definitely created in the wake of the cruiser cheese But that said i mean we've all watched it in varying degrees varying varying number of episodes. I will admit to having watched the first episode and a later episode. That i was told i should watch because it was worth watching and the guys are pretty finished. A lot of it right. So unless the jump in Just start with you. What's what's your take coming up. Well i guess well i. I actually ended up catching it early. Screener of it before so. Luckily i only watch more so It to be blunt. It was not as trashy as what i expected it to be. Maybe no expectations. And like i feel like new money. Beat amuse people like there are certain type and how the show presented was Surprisingly a a lot. More layered than i thought you know especially particularly when You know you go deeper into the series because at first episode definitely like leaned into like this this like you know american dream poll by the bootstraps model minority and all that jazz and and then it starts off like that and then just breaks it down and just show us like just all the dysfunctions of the family. So you know actually was an keep in mind. I don't really watch. the family. Reality shows is just not my thing. But you know i had to see it. 'cause beat me representation and you know all my worries and concerns
Ellen Pompeo Hints at Grey's Anatomy End, Khloe Defends Kim's 40th B-Day Trip Amid Backlash
"It's time for some daily. Pop Morgan. Is out today suggested I joined once again by actress kitchen night polio. Thank you for joining us from Georgia. Loving for having me. Thank you. says. They do even. Just in case. Well, thank you very awesome. I want some. Okay. One of your favorite TV shows may be ending grey's anatomy has been on for fifteen years and Ellen pompeo just made a very shocking confession about what is next she tells variety. We don't know when the show is really ending it, but the truth is this year could be at this is also the last year of Ellen's contract. Okay. So Justin. Do you think they should end the show now while they're on top because people are still loving the show. Grey's anatomy is Kinda Sorta like young and the restless in the sense that like it can go forever and could miss a whole year. I'm back watched two episodes and then be caught up again you know what I mean. Yeah and the answer minds right and almost reminds me of the time. Do you remember when the hills was I going off Air Lauren Conrad was going to walk out the church and it was going to finish and she thought the curtains were going. To close and all of a sudden kristen cavalieri walks in and they revamp did I think Ellen pump? POMPEO is gray but the show can survive without her but can't survive without Shonda see. So Shonda, of course, just send them big NETFLIX's deal and it's to my understanding from what I was reading that she is literally parting ways with ABC completely, which may mean she's not GonNa have our hands on this show as much as she has in the past maybe not at all. And without shining once you've created show. Yeah. But once you've created a show, it's your show and I mean who's changed things happen we don't know how her contract is structured it could just be humming net flicks. One hundred percent but do I mean I think ABC has Shonda rhimes was so early in her career I don't think any see would have given Shonda. rhimes so much ownership over that show where she could move it to ABC but I think that Shonda rhimes, this voice, her blood, her sweat is so in this show that yes if shot arrives went to Netflix she will still get her coins from this show and she will let Iran. We'll be run by somebody else. That's does her voice. Okay. So listen I know somebody who used to write for how to get away with murder and he told me that his job was literally pointless because he says we were instructed to come in with ideas and we always did we came in and we said here's this. Here's that here's this but it always went with whatever Shauna had envisioned. Thank you for your ideas. Those are good and all but. We're going to do this. Appreciates the help but what did you say? No I said well, clearly, she has something you know I know it can be frustrating for someone to shoot down your ideas but the longevity of her career and all the shows that she is there's a reason why they've been successful and I know the Debbie Allen has been doing a lot with race mad at me. You know. You never know she still no matter she goes to net she still you know that's still her show. They can't take that away even if she starts creating another network. One hundred percent you know what? I am all about being petty and I heard about the drama shameless ABC for not giving Shonda that extra fast pass at Disneyland Shame on you. But if I'm Shonda RHIMES, I don't give y'all keep the show going on still get the cash I'm not gonNA. You know bitch and fuss about it. I have two kids got college should be four and I love living fancy like Oprah. We'll see what happens but I know there's some diehard grey's anatomy fans that are just not ready to say goodbye yet. So we will have to wait and see okay Khloe Kardashian has a message for the people who are hitting on Kim's birthday trip. She told Ellen Degeneres. She knows this year has been very frustrating for everyone but there Was a good thing. I did hear that people were upset that we all went out of town but also its her fortieth, and this is something that she really wanted to do for us. It was such a nice thing and being there with all the precautions and everything that we took and being there and how grateful everybody was for the tourism aspect of it and how. So many people said that we were their first party or guests that they've had in months and what it's done like for them to be able to pay their bills or to do. So for their family I mean just hearing those. Yeah. Messages when we were there, it was really a we felt really good and we felt so safe. So safe Wow. You know I knew the minute that first photo went. Oh, here we go. It's GonNa be a firestorm and For me I went to Cynthia Bailey's wedding in Atlanta and a lot of people were giving flack about that I thought about it for ten seconds and when it's a milestone, a wedding or fortieth birthday or something. Of that magnitude, it's hard. Skip it. It's hard to say or I'll just wait until next year. So I completely understand why there was so much backlash but I also understand why you wanted to continue in go on with it because you know sometimes. Life Yeah Kisha. And and the truth is that you know they did everything I think unfortunately, the Kardashian. Sometimes are just a position where you're kind of damned if you do damned if you don't. I'm not mad at him. I'm like, go ahead live your best life you share money you should be able to spend it how you WANNA spend it and they did everything they could to keep people safe in terms of quarantine in terms of getting Kobe task I mean, what more can you ask for it? Some people are upset because they don't have the option to do it, but you know sometimes you you can't just live perilously through the and plan your trip that newest you.
"shonda" Discussed on Ringer Dish
"Wasn't jam session. I'm really outlet man I'm Amanda Dobbins Hello. Julie. How are you? Good I'm glad to you got to see. How Lovely We are going to talk about a wide range of topics today all gals kind of and that includes Lauren. And just kind of like millennials which I'm like obviously really excited to dig into, we are going to attach on frequent jam session heroines, Chrissy Teagan and Emily Roddick Hausky and first. Let's talk about my beloved America's beloved shot her IAMs who had a bang-up Hollywood reporter profile last week following in the tradition of the Ellen pompeo Hollywood reporter profile man what'd you think loved it? This is extraordinary stuff. This is the kind of thing in this did happen. A few days ago last week and it was time so. We didn't get to talk about it on jam session, but I did get to talk about it with everyone in my personal life, and this is the one where it's like I texted you texted every other group chain I'm on your group chain of Juliette and texted you know it was like recounting it at dinner have just been reflecting my own relationship to the work. I really commend Shonda rhimes for being Shonda rhimes. So the bigger vehicle in the story was that she left. ABC After fifteen fruitful years at least to the outside I think one takeaway by the way she like working in network television is crushing. It is really hard work. She left after fifteen years because she'd created incredibly valuable Ip for herself and for more for ABC, which is owned by Disney, which you may know has a theme park business including Disneyland or did never did until twenty twenty still still exist kinda part of disease problem. And actually, I can speak to this from a point of personal experience. I was once Disney employee when I worked at ESPN and part of the perks of working at ESPN are you get fifty percent off Disney hotels if you go to like a Disney location one of the parks or cruises I would absolutely never gonNA cruise but that's what you're interested in go for it and The also get the famed silver, pass you, and if you're married, your spouse gets one as well. The silver pass allows you and three guests to enter any of Disney's theme parks or free. There's a few stipulations you must be present you the employees or you the spouse of employee I will say it's like very like marriage. Supremacy but whatever we come back to that in a second you get it for free. If you're caught giving someone your past like if you're caught not following this, not only the spirit but the absolute letter of the rural, you lose your silver pass, they're really serious that it and indigenous overpass. You also get like two tickets so you can give out per year and they roll over. So some people like will store them up for years or they're leaving they'll give them away like what are so China I. Think I'm actually surprised that she gaas overpass as an working with ABC because I doubt she was a string of employees of ABC, but probably is part of her deal. She got silver passed but she wanted another one and she was denied and as a result. She looks and affects she took her talents elsewhere. So we gotta dig into this because I wanNA talk about the the story itself and the details that she provides and the experience, and then I also WanNa, talk about how she tells this story in this narrative because all of it's extremely inspiring to me. So she talks about this pass and she talks about wanting an extra pass because she knows the rules that you just explained and she's telling the Hollywood reporter that she wanted her sister to be able to go and take her children because she's not able to go. Because as she says, the Hollywood reporter I have things to do. Like I have several shows to make. But she knows that they're not transferrable. So she emails a friend, not a friend. It's like someone that she works with her contact at at Disney and is like, would this be possible and right off the Bat Disney gives a hard time. They're like we really don't do that. We're very strict about that. That is true. Okay. and. On the one hand I think that's great because treat you know. Treat your employees equally and I think that's that's good. But also as Shana ranch points out in this piece, she brought the company. Chew Billion Dollars. Give or take a it is Shonda rhimes with with respect Juliette. I. Think you would be the first to say that you know Shonda in a as a former Disney employee you would possibly understand that Shana contributed a lot to the company. Yes. And things are very great before. So they give her a hard time and then they're finally like, okay, we'll do this. And then. Her sister and children go to the park and only one of the passes works and so she calls again to have it resolved. And finally makes her way to a Disney executive who I believe says to her on the phone in her memory, and as she recounts to the Hollywood reporter is an important distinction. Don't you have enough. Is Literally what the Disney executive says to Shonda rhimes one of their biggest and most consistent moneymakers while her family member and children are standing outside Disneyland trying to get in.

Have you guys been missing Jennifer Lawrence because I definitely have we haven't seen her much recently, but she is back. She hasn't changed a bit. She still holds nothing back.

I'm sorry but interesting Coober I saw him on. CNN. Lee. Three days later saying like what she'd obviously the ball and it was so devastated this horrific humiliation to me that like took away like I don't know ever have a chance to give a speech that again I saw him at a Christmas party and I let him know my friend told me that they was. But he apologized and I think I think we're good friends now. Do you think I wanted to fall getting Oscar but I remember when I led with was have you ever tried to walk upstairs in a ball gown? Right. So then how do you know like I with that? He apologized. Oh my gosh. Okay. I gotta go straight. Ahead some pesky reporters. To write stories sometimes, it's so weird. I haven't been in therapy about it for years now anyway, what was the question? is you see this particular person which I know loves you so much Is and you got to run into him or her at a party. What would you WanNa do would you talk to her? Would you say something? Oh my God I feel like I've envisioned this interaction first of all shot to Heather McMahon because I love her she is hilarious hilarious. I am obsessed with her so I'm happy for her that she got J. Lo on her podcast I feel like. Jay Jay said Jay Lop. I said. On kidding. I wouldn't mess up but. I will say I've had visions of maybe approaching certain people that write things and I think it really depends on the alcohol consumption. Cooper I right. I would go to Anderson Cooper because he's a respectable journalist, he made a nasty remark. You know you're getting an apology out of him but some of these other bitches are a little nuts. So I don't know I don't WanNa fuel anymore fire. So it depends it depends one hundred percent i. think that's a very good point you have to know who you're dealing with because if it's somebody who really doesn't like you and you get that five, a day could very easily turn the story around and write a whole other article saying crazy Morgan or crazy. Kisha. Came up in screen that man apart. But the other thing they if they're already writing crazy thing, they can write it regardless you scream are not. So. That's also true. I would say you've got to follow your gut and I completely agree with more again it depends on how many drinks of the consumed evening, how you're going to approach because you know sometimes yeah. You know there's certain like the GENITA- Crown, it may go let. Me Go left. It also depends on who's with you right. If my husband was with me see, my husband gets much more fired up than I do and I know you might find that surprising but he would be the one that would literally do me to say something I think you should say something you should call that did out and. I'm usually the one that's like, no, no, no. No let's just let it calm down. But if I'm getting like talked up into it, then I might yeah, pay south. Yeah versus if I have someone that's like, it's not worth the babe just to let's just go over here I'll be like. All right. You GotTa have your backup backup. Yeah. You got to have the right height man. If you're wanting to do it, it's got to be someone that's GonNa go up with you and have your back no matter what comes out of your mouth but. It's also good in these situations with somebody who's not necessarily your friend to be as composed as possible but I think when you're so heated already. Interaction, never goes as well as you want it to. and. All. Thank you. Scream at them. Yeah. I'm GonNa, say real quick. I think also even better way to handle this have a good woman someone who could do your dirty work for you. So you don't have to be the one that goes says us that this Lella you can have them do it and then your hands clean. One hundred percent yeah you need the right best e with you I like that okay. Moving out of channing tatum. So sad news I think channing Tatum Jessie j broke up again Jesse just posted this video drinking and dancing with the caption single live in a pandemic. That's how you get there strap. We talk about that. A source tells US Jesse and channing broke up months ago because they realize they're just better off as friends now they've brought up and gone back together multiple times at what point. Do you say this is finally do you think this is finally for these two I? I'm. Not Down here, you know I mean. Go ahead. No, you I mean I just think listen like you know it's supposed to be sort of like a new relationship is supposed to be fun. It's supposed to be easy and it might not last forever. But if it's supposed to be the fun easy relationship and you've already broken up four times in between that time, it just seems like clearly there's something here that is not connecting you to something is not working out. So just like leave it alone there's no reason for these to attack broken up three times like. In my yeah. At this point in life, you know my motto is. You know it's like spoiled milk. You don't put it back in the refrigerator. and. Come back and think it's going to be something other and foiled. On because clearly, it was gonNA work by now. Exactly Keach. Have you ever gone through this where you broke out was somebody got back together the whole thing I think that's something that probably when you're younger and you Kinda keep getting things to try and when you fall in love with the ones possibility I think as you get older and you've done it and you've learned that lesson, you realize you know okay you know what? This isn't working for me. It is. Okay. We don't have to make our. Yeah. I luckily, you said Fall in love with their possibility men is that true? Amir Young? You're falling in love half the time with just what you think. They're GONNA be your. Number set and then you realize that potential here and I. Think also when you're younger, you're more willing to be in a relationship that might not be perfect because you don't skip factor in time as much. But I think as you get older, you're like I don't have the time to waste on something that's really too difficult. You don't have the energy either

Insiders scoff at Meghan and Harry's reported $150M Netflix deal
"We've been talking the last couple of days about Meghan Markle and hair, ese. Deal with Netflix. Okay. And there are some reports that have been saying that Prince Harry in Meghan Markle that their production deal signed this week with Netflix could be worth as much as $150 million. And Hollywood insiders are saying Absolutely not. There's no way it could be that much because they're producers, not content creators. So what The comparison is is to some of these deals like Shonda Rhimes, For example, you know who's created Grey's Anatomy on everything. She has a reported $150 million deal with Netflix and then the creator of Black ish Kenya. Barris. Also, that deal reported to be worth $100 million. But there's a top Hollywood agent who says that he'd be shocked if Meghan and Harry's deal was worth more than two million a year because they aren't creating these shows, you know, like Shonda And Kenya are creating the concepts writing. I mean, Shauna writes everything. Yeah, Yeah. Big difference. Mona Content she produces is extraordinary. Unbelievable. I mean, she writes she has a team to about 20. But yeah, I mean her her vision. Her concepts exacts important. You're showrunner and your head writer. They set the tone of everything right. So Harry and Megan, they're going to just kind of source it out and and they're going to hear a name on it. Yeah, and they're going to be producer so they'll put their name on it. But there will be other producers as well.

If It Don't Fit, I Quit!
"We're GONNA phone call from a listener of this past week and the listener had a question. They are seventy one. They have no Internet connection at their home. They would go to the library and they would retrieve all of their email at the library and the question was how can they access their email if they don't have an Internet. They don't have a smartphone. They don't have a laptop no technology and a gentleman was really great and explained it to me and so I got together with Shonda weird and we were talking about it and Sean says you know I've heard about this product called Grand Pad and I think this might be a great solution. We reached out the company and within a half an hour. We had Scott. Lean on the show to tell us all about the different products that they have and the great solution with granted and Scott is the CEO of the company. Scott it's great to talk to you and see you face to face and thanks for coming on talk. Great thanks for having me on. Well I'll tell you Grand PAD is an amazing product for those that maybe are technically challenged or really. Just don't feel the need to have to get a full pc or a laptop or a tablet set-back about eight nine hundred dollars that don't that doesn't have this capability to be able to do what. Grand Pad can do. Can you tell us a little bit about the company and kind of where did this idea come from? It came from personal. Need we saw on our own family so my son and I and I'm fifty five. My son is twenty five. We started the company together six years ago because we saw my mom who was eighty at the time and my mother-in-law who's eighty eight struggling would standard technology and as we started looking into he said all of course no fault of theirs. They were trying to use technology. Iphones ipads other devices. That were designed for thirty year olds. It's unreasonable to think that it would work. Great for someone. Who's and they have different needs. And so we set out to design something from the ground up hardware-software service that was designed for what we lovingly called Super Seniors. All those folks that we just love so much or over the age of seventy five and it's designed just for them and it's got all the things that they want not the things that somebody who's twenty once and vice versa. So that's what started us out on this journey six years ago and now we're reaching thousands and thousands of people around the world and people really love it because it was designed for was the idea originally saying we need to do something that is not tied with suddenly. You have to get an internet carrier. You have to worry about a router in the home. The WIFI was that kind of from the ground you realize. This is one of the challenges. We're going to have to face. Yeah absolutely we step back and looked at the whole. You know the problem and then work to come up with a solution. What we said is what what my wanted was she wanted to be able to do. Video calls with their grandchildren. Who were all the United States and my mom like many folks in this age group suffered from pretty serious hearing loss so talking on a standard line land landline or cellphone was not an option for her because she can hear and so she she wanted to video call but using skype and fussing with their PC dealing with headphones it frustrated her and and frankly it frustrated the point where It made her feel bad and made her feel stupid. She's like well. Why can't figure this out? She ran around. Business was absolutely brilliant. Lady but what caused her to cut withdraw and say fussing with this technology and viruses and all. This is so irritating to me. I'm just not going to do it. you know human nature. If something's painful you withdraw from it and then sadly was happening. Was she was more disconnected from her family. Because of that so that was the problem we set out to solve and it's says exactly as he said we said let's let's try to solve all of it. No Wi Fi is required because grand pad comes built in. It's got four G. L. T. Just like our cellphones built in. That's all they're out of the box when you ship. It just automatically works no cables. That are hard to plug in. Like on a on an iphone where you gotta get plug it in. And if if I have eyesight issues and tremors this just has a wireless inductive charging docking station. You just sit there at a charter. So we really looked at even the packaging We've all been frustrated. You go to the store and you buy something. It's got that plastic clamp show and you gotta have a hammer a knife in assessors dope. It we got rid of all that nonsense and we just. We made a product that my mom marlins who sadly she's gone now but my mother-in-law eighty-eight Joan something that they would love and use every day to stay connected with your family. I love the fact that And some people just if you could set up a Wifi. Give Him. A tablet okay. Let's face it. They have the tablet. I know I have a tablet and I lose it all the time with this. You can use it and they put it right back on that charging station like you said no worry about having a recharge it and that's a nice look in charging stations so with it on a table. It's going to have a nice presentation. People people like keep it there. You know next to him on their Either on their nightstand around the table next to him. It's always there. We we really obsessed about the design. So even what's the right angle? So that when it sitting there on the docking station. It's it's at the perfect angle to do a video call. I don't have to be holding and then sees my face and I can easily see my grandchildren and the other thing is The audio quality. I'm always losing my headphones. And they're hard to plug in and they don't work rider. Bluetooth has dead. This has super loud front facing speakers. So it's the loudest talent. It's a custom built tablet that was made just for this age group so super loud that makes video calling easy but it makes music and I know you're listers love good. Oldies we hell. Yeah we have over thirty million songs. I can play some audio for you. It's loud. It's clear perfect to to hear.
Learning How to Forgive
"I don't subscribe to the idea people a- bad and I I don't subscribe to that because I believe that these inherent good in everyone. I think that crime It's all to be honest with you. Very relative What might be criminal in. Some communities are excused in other communities. Delia Muna was born in London and raised in Nigeria. Her mother is Nigerian and her father is from Sierra Leone. She went to college and Law School in the United States and then she became a public defender in Washington. Dc main motivation for me is that throughout my time as a public defender. I and as a Christian I operate from the presume that if Jesus swear on earth today he'd be a public defender. He was always defending people who were accused of various Nefarious activities Tax Collectors and you know Prostitutes and and and people that we will consider unsavory but as a public defender. I got to learn and appreciate that. Each person has a story and that my role as an advocate was to tell that story in a way that will shoot to the lead experiences to give voice to them I learned to appreciate the fact that but for the grace of God Right. and fat Human beings have the capacity for change today. We're talking about forgiveness. I'm phoebe judge. This is criminal I'd like to ask you about where you grew up in Nigeria and and how growing up. You saw forgiveness injustice Criminality in differently than than we do here right. So we're very very communal society and so compared to to the US where It seems that we exist in silos and a very much individual pull yourself up by your bootstraps sort of mentality in Nigeria we. It's sort of those mentality that if one person is going astray we all collectively are going astray. And so the idea is You know we rally people will rally around you to make sure that That you don't go astray and that if you do that there are resources particularly human resources to help you Sorta recalibrate Your life trajectory And that's really critically important. I guess it's kind of a flip the whole idea in on the head which is in other communities when someone does something bad it it looks bad upon the community. Exactly as opposed to here. Where if someone does something bad when this person must be intrinsically bad or evil and let's remove them from the society? Oh yes absolutely. You absolutely correct here. It's you did something you something that you did and in other communities. It's like well what? How did we fail? How could we have prevented this? And now that you have indeed some done something. What can we do to restore your humanity? What can we do to make sure that you become one of us The question becomes. When is enough enough? When is punishment enough? When can we say you have paid your dues? It's time to welcome you back into society because we still think you've got value. We still think there's much more that you can add to being a productive member of our community in two thousand eleven a twenty five year old woman Nimble Shonda Armstrong drove her car. Into New York's Hudson River with her three children inside later. Leshan to Armstrong's neighbors came forward and said they knew she was in trouble. The often heard yelling. Her landlord leader said that she asked him twice in six months to change the locks on her doors. Delia Luna wrote about Louis Armstrong and other women who'd committed similar crimes she asks how is it that American society bears no social responsibility to support. Its most vulnerable members. In raising their children she proposes that we watch out for each other not just watch each other but really look out and offer help as she says communities in Nigeria. Often do she writes. It's imperative that the legal system take steps to foster a sense of communal obligation towards the most vulnerable members of our society single mothers and their children in two thousand fifteen delia. Muna was made clinical professor of law at Harvard. The law school's first Nigerian professor. She's also the deputy director of Harvard's Criminal Justice Institute where Third Year Law Students under supervision. Essentially work is public defenders. We asked her to tell us about the cases that stay with her the most and she says it's the ones where children are charged with crimes. She told us about representing a nine year old girl and she was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and she was charged because while Throwing ten from classroom. She picked up a book a textbook and threw it at a teacher. Miss the teacher. The book hit the wall The child was promptly taken to a The principal's office and when she got there she was then arrested put in handcuffs. She was transported at the back of a police car and brought to the courthouse. She had to be placed in isolation so in solitary because she was nine years old and I went into speak with her so she is tiny little person and I was trying to explain to her. What my role was as her attorney and advocate and she had no idea Just even process in what that meant and she looked at me and she said where's my grandmother. And when can she take me back to school and then she said to me? Do you have any food? I'm hungry and so there. I was trying to figure out how to advocate for this child. In light of the very serious thing that she'd been charged with I mean assault with a dangerous weapon. book But clearly this child at other issues that we're contributing to Her behavior in class that day and he really will have been a very cruel and capricious thing for the legal system to continue. Its prosecution of her. It's easy to forgive a child and to consider all the social factors in play in their behavior. It's not always so easy to forgive adult. Well that's correct I it's easy when you paint a picture of a very vulnerable child but what about those evil adults and evil men and women who do such terrible things well. The truth is A An an an evil adult or terrible adult just didn't You know pop from just didn't become that way. They've had most likely a terrible childhood A childhood where they will likely abused likely neglected. And so you have children who wants. That's happened to them will indeed grow up to be adults who then Commit crimes I don't ever believe that an adult just takes actions without something being the catalyst for whatever it is. They that they've done and so it might be easier to forgive a child but if you delve deeper into the experiences the lived experience of an adult I think it makes it easier to forgive them once. You understand what it is that they've been through The prism through which they view life and sort of. What's happened to them?

"I mean, you are paying for the privilege using that Jj Abrams or bad robot name in the opening credits or closing credits of your TV show. You know that's really what a lot of this is, although it's worth noting that he is working on his first series. He's created. Alias called them ammonia. And that's four H B O. So he does still put his stamp on certain projects and yet, but to your point, it is it is a question, right? That these companies have to dress, how much do they want to spend big to lock down the marquee, talent versus finding and kind of building up new talent at argue that a good pot, former or media company would would do a little bit of both. You know, you're seeing that with, like HBO kind of helped find and, and move ISA Ray from the digital world to television. And now they've gotten overall deal with her, and she's doing a lot more for them. So insect says, you know, you can kind of do do both and help make someone into that next Jj Abrams or shonda rhimes, or, you know, the next kind of big show runner. But, you know, the other the other question, we're still waiting to hear a lot of details because this deal as much as we've reported the Warner's the final final bitter here. I don't think it's it's fully done on, you know, win when JJ was paramount. He didn't actually do a whole lot for paramount because he was busy directing stars. So, you know, if Warners smart and able to they will, you know, have a part of their, you know, part of pain him five hundred million dollars will be for that exclusively and really making sure that he's coming on board to direct movies for one of others. I'm sure paramount. Feels like they wish they had gotten a little more of his attention on the Star Trek franchise, right? Whereas, you know, instead he sort of stepped away and, and made a couple of Star Wars movies. I do want. I mean there's still a place. Also, just as as you should, as you were saying, sort of be cultivating talent, while also like new talent. While also using big names. There's also some talent who doesn't want to be pinned down. I've definitely seen interviews in the Hollywood reporter and elsewhere, where people creators say they really kind of like the idea that they're free agents and that they can they can guide their projects to destinations where it's more appropriate. And I guess that's the risk. If you are Jj Abrams is getting a lot of money, which is great, but you your stuff needs to fit into the. At forms that Warner media has. And if you've got a project idea that doesn't really fit, maybe maybe you'll lose out, but what you get is guaranteed money, but I can also see why somebody might want to be a free agent and take the end of this project over here in this project over there, because something might be a better fit for Netflix, something might be a better fit for a more niche, streaming service or cable channel. I mean, that's the same argument for why in, in some cases, it can be good to be Sony. You know a, a company a studio that doesn't have a network that they have to sell into they can kind of play the field. I would also argue that, that's you know, if you had looked at JJ deal before the AT and T acquisition of Warner Brothers, maybe it wouldn't have been as appealing. But now that they're this kind of, you know, multi-pronged company with all these different distribution opportunities, including this upcoming streaming service that starts to be a lot more. Compelling to creative like a Jj Abrams because, yes, you're more limited. But you're also you know, you've got a pretty big playing field to work with within one company. It's a big pond that the big fish swimming in because of all of this, what is your take while we're on this subject about sort of where Warner media is in general?.

We're going to show life at its worst. It's best. It's and everything in between because that's what people will relate to more versus like, okay, I believe in Jesus. Everything's great. Now that all the sunshine came in unicorn. No, that's not how that works. Yeah. I mean, I feel like that's, I think having seen how you are just following on social media and seeing how you are in like it's It's just. just very real in the sense that you're like this, what I believe, but also like there's other stuff going on you. It's not all just like one one straight line. And I think he's seeing this movie and seeing you to doing it together. I was like super excited because I'm thinking this is going to be a real of really good film based on just what we've seen of your acting general. But just like something that feels good, but also berry like deep and meaningful. I'm super excited and I feel like grays people are going to be so exciting. Everyone. Reunion. All show up a weekend Hicks, October twenty six. Quick question. If you do as a person of faith who ended up playing a person of faith and conic person characteristics, did they mold that character around you? Or did you happen to get no addition for this wonderful part now they actually didn't my character. It wasn't revealed that she was a person of faith until I had been on the show for three years. And so at the end of season eight, it's revealed and and I remember when we were starting to work on that episode talking to shonda rhimes and she said, look, I wanna tell the most honest story possible about a person of faith. I want it to feel totally authentic. So please let me know if come, you know the doors wide open, come in pitches stories. Anything that doesn't feel like something you might say, you let us know. So I really took that to heart as a real open door kind of situation and and I walked through that door almost every episode just. To to to to throw my own experience into it and to try to be as sensitive as possible in in telling the most authentic story possible because so many depictions of people of faith are were the butt of every joke or were just so judgmental or recommend lately unrelated -able. And that's just not my community. You know, we're, we're not those people like so many of us like screw up. And then I have to say we're starry, and then we're also just really trying to live out our faith in love the people that we come to contact with. You know, it's not we're most of us aren't that. I, in my community are not trying to impose our beliefs on anyone else, and we're not judging anybody and we have friends in every different walk of life. And so I wanted April to represent that kind of of a Christian. I think that's more what Jesus was about any. Yeah, that's I think what I liked the most was that. I, you know, I feel like a lot of most TV shows there aren't if they are showing anyone who's Christian or faith based, it's they are kind of the butt of the joke or they're like it's a bad light. And so I think that's what I remember when like you in Jackson started how like y'all got married, and then it was like an and you got pregnant was like, how are we going to raise the baby? Like we haven't talked about in this stuff, and it was like, that's real stuff like relationships and marriages were. They don't have the same faith in like, how do you navigate that? So it was real. I mean, I just I could talk about, I could talk to both. No one has time for that. Thank you so much for coming today. I really, really, really, really appreciate it. Everybody go go, go see the movie. It is out October twenty six and it's called indivisible and this Friday. Yeah. Well, Well, my friend, my friend, Dan..

Definitely you don't. My story is probably a common one. I have been a stay at home, mom, the home schooling mom for the past over twenty years, and I really never thought I'd be a health coach. In fact, I didn't even know what a health coach, but I'd never heard of one had no idea.

"I mean, we've had black films that have made money, but I think that you in the past five years have started to see movies that have consistently made money with diverse audiences. I mean, I'm I, I have nine number one movies, not number one in Detroit, not number one in Atlanta, you know? But nine number one across the boys did some you got it. I did something those weekends that you know much of the film's wish they could have done. I got more audience is going to see my movies than others. And so I'm certainly have been a part along with a lot of other people in showing Hollywood that there's real money to be made in the content. The other thing is that you've got all those storytellers that you named who are hungry and who, and who are doing it by any means necessary. You've got a generation of creators and filmmakers and. Storytellers right now who will not be denied, who are going to figure out a way to get their stories. I feel like in the television space, the success of shonda rhimes and Oprah opening up at own and Netflix expanding the playing field massively. Yes, has changed that a lot of black creators are coming question. Yeah, there's there's more. Hollywood king right now you were pictures than they used to make each studio is contracting area interest too high. So exactly. So what is the thing that led Hollywood? Does the tipping point? What is it was their movie, or was there a success that led them to say is this before Black Panther back may their benefits from this trend? What was the thing that made folks say, let's give more of them a chain economics. It's the economic imperative the business operates under. So again, they were not making money in the same way. They did traditionally with like, you know, a white male star and you just put elements around him and you win like it's the star system is completely upside down. Now, you know what I mean? A star doesn't really mean much when it comes at the actual movies. So what happened was Hollywood had to figure out how we going to bring these other. These marble needed Black Panther right as much as the culture needed. Black Panther marvel needed black pants too, because they needed something to make sure that they continue to feel relevant as big as those movies aren't. You know, there's just there's a shelf life after a while. People will get tired of, you know, comic book franchises, it will happen, but this gave a whole new life to it in a whole new dimension that can open up. So Hollywood needed diverse storytelling to help keep the lights on as crazy as that may sound. They need all those people. You just name. They need to join pills and the spikes and the boots and everybody else to come and create content that's going to bring audiences to the audiences aren't going like they used to. What's your superpower. Well, this is this is where it gets weird. I'm able to turn invisible to react thought. I wouldn't know that nut. What he meant that Joe. What about gay?

"They were flirting with making these kinds of shows and wanted to try to do it but they couldn't do it and if you look at something i just mentioned like empire everything on broadcast especially in our long turns to dust eventually like you just can't generate plot at a pop song level of intensity and drama and mine rewarding three four five years out of it it's just it it never works you mean in terms of the twenty two episodes yes man yeah and also you know the thing that was great about empire and i wrote about this grand grantland was i was like this is what broadcast tv should do it should be the top forty radio of everything which throw everything at it in it's big and it's camping it's fun and everything is drawn you know larger than life but if everything is larger than life than ultimately it's a little bit exhausting i think that the one of the more significant trends was that the only people who pulled it off well let's let's hold them both out there's the kings on cbs right with with the good wife and now the good fight in the good fight yet i wanted to mention and shonda rhimes who has found a way to make quality procedural slash soap opera attic shows work shonda rhimes is going to netflix and the kings are on cbs all access roughing fbomb that's basically bs being like this doesn't work for our model anymore we need more fbi which is about the fbi you pulled off the good wife but if you're going to keep going we'll just shut you off to essentially our version of cable yeah so cbs has like a sneakily interesting network just it's behind a paywall on a website right into that's how that works for them and once again they've sort of figure out a way to that they they tend to make their decisions more calmly soberly and slowly and then it sort of works out for them way that is actually pretty remarkable when i'm looking at this new crop of shows and we can post this link you sent me like variety had a round up of just abc's shows the thing about it.

"Was created by shonda rhimes in two thousand twelve followed a former white house communications director is she starts her own crisis management firm it's filled with the primetime drama that sean to rhymes of grey's anatomy fame has become known for scandal had its series finale this past thursday let's rewind a bit amanda what when scandal first came out it was really considered groundbreaking breaking can you kind of unpack that for sure i mean i think the day that love your pope entered our television world was the first time in over forty years that a black woman led a time network drama so the first time it happened was with teresa graves in a show called get christie love it premiered in nineteen seventy four you only got one single season obviously scandal faired a lot better had seven seasons it was hugely historic not only because it was a black female lead but it was also created by a black woman it was inspired named shonda rhimes it was inspired by the true story the the real life of a black woman named judy smith it also veered very far from her life i think as it progressed but it was inspired by this idea of a high profile dc fixer so i mean that was creating history all just by the mere fact of its existence but once it was on television it also created a new culture of watching television with its live tweeting so it kind of popularized this hallway that we watch television now which is organiz online digital communities and kind of in the moment reacting to what you're seeing on the screen and scandal really popularize whole idea of watching television in that way which was which is kind of like the way that networks have kind of pushed their television programming now because as people are pulling the plug more on their cable television this is the only way that you can get people watching in real time and feeling invested as through this online community so with all that having you know as the setup for this series that's now come to a conclusion what were you guys thinking about when you watch the series.

"Since the very beginning and let me say i've just seen this show go down so many different roads and until on the one hand i'm sad to know that on thursday nights i'll no longer be watching scandal but on the other hand i'm happy to see this show leave the air on shonda rhimes is terms that we get to see a story arc come to completion and we don't have to worry or wonder about what happened to our gladiators we know she's given us a really tight ending to the story so you have written that this show over its arcus made some important contributions as i said to american culture a start in the early days of the show because you were a person not only who watched every episode but you used to like to sort of participate you know people who love shows get on social media they tweet about the shows you had the role of writing about them afterward so starting earlier so in the early years of the show we see a political fixer livia pope you know who is taking on the dc elite and she's keeping their secrets and helping them fix their messes and in the early seasons as rhymes is setting up the story it centres on her relationship with the president fitzgerald grant and those early episodes really explore the politics in the the trials and complications of not only an interracial relationship but a relationship with a married man and then the show starts to branch out and situa alluvia in a political climate so then we start to see the show grapple with issues related to sexual harassment in the workplace we see the show tackle same sex love and marriage and desire it's also a show that starts take on issues related to state violence against the black community.

"Like they're in that show almost fan service for politics like giving the political junkies what they want you know it's just like in in star wars where they had like these little scenes i gave the allusions back to previous episode ready player one where it's all like fan service just i i'm tossing out like nostalgia for you it's almost like that for politics i feel this way about an issue and the characters just mirroring what you feel exactly no one's struggling with it the one that i'm trying to remember that was more recent was a black teenager gets shot in his own backyard and it's like so clearly ripped from the headlines because that happens like every week and tragically just happened just having again and so of course i feel the same way that shonda rhimes in her writing team feels about this kid however her about this this whole thing that keeps happening in our country so the family shows up and the only people in the whole scenario that think that the cops were right to shoot a kid in the back in his own backyard are the cops and none of the doctors and none of the nurses and none of the family and so i'm sitting here looking at this going like if you're really trying to teach something you're missing the teaching moments because the only teaching moment happens is when people disagree and people listen to each other and understand and then you then you get that person to see how they were wrong but an amd era cop who's has two lines and is not really a part of the show we don't have any investment in whether or not they change or care we only have that investment in the main characters so the writers of tv shows need to be willing to sacrifice one of their main characters.
