Tune in alert for ABC's Scandal - the latest from Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rimes. The series, based in Washington D.C., is the story of Olivia Pope, described as an elite crisis manager.
This exceptional new series is lensed by one of our favorite cinematographers, Oliver Bokelberg (The Station Agent).
Pope is a "fixer" played by Kerry Washington, who portrays this effective whip-smart lawyer and crisis manager inspired by the life of Judy Smith, whose cases have included Michael Vick and the BP oil spill.
Pope is a former Oval Office insider who has formed a thriving crisis-management firm in Washington, D.C. With her frighteningly fast-talking staff (Henry Ian Cusick, Columbus Short, Darby Stanchfield, Katie Lowes, and Guillermo Diaz), she handles a Russian diplomat, a Georgetown madame, a decorated military hero - all caught in less than savory situations.
