Freeze Frame will take audiences on a rollercoaster ride through some of LA’s toughest streets where gangs, poverty, violence, and drugs are an everyday reality.

“It’s like all these souls keep speaking to me and it’s like we’ve got to do something about it,” Debbie told THR. “Yeah, people should be able to have guns. But let’s do it in a safe way. Let’s be reasonable and let’s give some more education and opportunity, and help people that are in need who become desperate.”

Patrick Dempsey Responds to Shonda Rhimes' Killing Off Characters She Doesn't Like Comment

Patrick Dempsey gave an interview with Entertainment Weekly where he was asked directly about Shonda Rhimes‘ comments about killing off characters because she did not like the actors.

Shonda‘s exact quote after being asked if she killed off characters because she didn’t get along with the actors was, “Yes, and I’m not naming names.”

Patrick responded, “I think she loves being provocative and that’s fine for who she is. That gets people talking about all the stuff that she’s doing. She’s an amazing woman who is incredibly productive. She’s promoting a book. She’s promoting three shows. And she’s emerging as the star of all of these things. I think she knows how to deal with the media and what she needs to say to get the response that she’s looking for. She’s very savvy.”

Patrick‘s character Derek Shepherd was killed off Grey’s Anatomy at the end of last season.

“You know, I was ready to move on and then I was focused on racing. When everything started happening, I was out of the country anyway and I was racing, which was a good distraction,” Patrick said about leaving the show.

Shonda Rhimes Admits to Killing a Character Because She Didn't Like the Actor

Shonda Rhimes just made a surprising confession – she has killed a character off one of her television shows because she didn’t like the actor!

The powerful television producer was appearing on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore when she was asked to answer the question. “Extra bonus points for who it was,” the host added.

Shonda paused before answering, “Yes… and I’m not naming names.”

Shonda Rhimes Talks About Her 100 Pound Weight Loss

Shonda Rhimes steps out on stage during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Monday (November 9).

The 45-year-old Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy creator opened up about why she was inspired to lose over 100 pounds throughout the last year.

“I got on an airplane, I was going to NY from LA and it was first class and it was going to be really comfortable. I got in my seat, I took off my shoes, I got out my book and I went to buckle the seat-belt and it wouldn’t buckle and I thought to myself, something is wrong with the seat-belt, its broken,” Shonda said. “But it wasn’t the seat-belt it was me. And I thought when I can get a seat-belt extender or I can die and not get a seat-belt extender, but maybe the plane will crash or I fly outta my seat, when we take off and I decided I will risk it and fly outta my seat and not say anything.”
