Shonda Rhimes, the brilliant mind behind ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Private Practice,’ brings you ‘Scandal’. Kerry Washington stars in the ABC drama as Olivia Pope, a lawyer who runs a crisis management firm.
Olivia Pope is a fixer. The best in D.C. A title earned first by getting an underdog candidate elected President. What makes Olivia Pope the best is that she doesn’t fix problems. She fixes clients. She fixes people. They come to her at their lowest moment. On the worst day of their lives. Covered in blood, on the verge of conviction…when rock bottom is in sight and there’s nowhere left to turn they come to Olivia Pope for salvation. Olivia’s about to take on the biggest scandal of our era, all the while trying to hide the fact that she’s a key player at the center of it all.
This is definitely a show that we’ll be watching. ABC has released the first seven minutes of the pilot episode, which you can watch by clicking here! Don’t miss the series premiere this Thursday, April 5th at 10PM EST on ABC.
