Though Shonda Rhimes found success with films like “Crossroads” -- Britney Spears’ cinematic debut -- “Grey’s Anatomy” was Rhimes’ true breakout. The medical drama, which focuses on Dr. Ellen Grey (Ellen Pompeo) as she navigates her career and personal life, was unique in its diverse casting.
The show, now in its 13th season, is one of the longest-running scripted primetime TV series. Fans last year were heartbroken when beloved character Dr. Derek Shepherd, played by Patrick Dempsey, died on the show.
