Shonda Rhimes to Turn Luvvie's Book Into Hit Comedy Series

Shondaland is adapting Luvvie Ajayi's best-selling book "I'm Judging You: The Do Better Manual" into a new comedy series.

I can't recall how many times I've read one of Luvvie Ajayi's posts and thought "yo, this woman needs her own show."


The Nigerian author has given us countless, cackle-worthy gems via her blog AwesomelyLuvvie.com, and it looks like her humor and candid wisdom will be making its way to television.

Shonda Rhimes' production company, Shondaland and ABC Signature Studios have acquired the rights to Luvvie's  New York Time's Best Seller I'm Judging You: The Do Better Manual with plans to adapt the book into a cable comedy series, Deadline reports.

Shonda has been a long time fan of Luvvie, and appreciates her wit and insight just as much as the rest of us.

I don't care, this is already my new favorite show.
