O Magazine Interview

1 Dec, 2006

Rhimes speaks about how she came up with the idea to create the ABC drama Grey’s Anatomy:

My sisters and I would call each other up and talk about operations we’d seen on the Discovery Channel. There’s something fascinating about the medical world—you see things you’d never imagine, like the fact that doctors talk about their boyfriends or their day while they’re cutting somebody open. So when ABC asked me to write another pilot, the OR seemed like the natural setting.
