Thank God It’s Thursday: The Baddest Chicks Of Shonda Rhimes’ Thursday Night Takeover

- By

Debbie Allen

Multi-talented Debbie Allen has enjoyed almost 40 years of success in the entertainment industry. Perhaps best known as the dance teacher on “Fame” as well as handling all of the show’s choreography, Allen is also a producer and director. Fans of “Grey’s Anatomy” will easily recognize Allen as Catherine Avery, the mother of Dr. Jackson Avery and the girlfriend of the former chief of surgery, Dr. Richard Webber. But Allen has also lent her skills behind the camera and has directed episodes for both “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal.” Allen directed six episodes of “Grey’s Anatomy” with the first one coming in 2010 but she called directing “Scandal’s” 317 episode titled “Flesh and Blood” earlier this year a “love fest.”
