Shonda Rhimes, Dee Rees Team for FX Drama Based on 'The Warmth of Other Suns'

Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers' Shondaland banner is heading to cable. The prolific producers behind ABC's Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder are teaming with Pariah writer/director Dee Rees to adapt Isabel Wilkerson's The Warmth of Other Suns as a limited series for FX, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The historical study, published in 2010, chronicles the decades-long migration of Black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities, in search of a better life. From 1915 to 1970, the exodus of almost 6 million people changed the face of America.
