Kerry Washington stars in ABC’s new television series “Scandal,” created by Shonda Rhimes of “Grey’s Anatomy” fame. She stars as Olivia Pope, a professional crisis manager who formerly worked for the President as his media relations consultant.
Here’s a quick synopsis: “Pope dedicates her life to protecting and defending the public images of our nation’s elite. After leaving the White House, the power consultant opened her own firm, hoping to start a new chapter—both professionally and personally—but she can’t seem to completely cut ties with her past.”
The series is based on real-life Washington-based PR guru Judy Smith – former White House press aide under President George H. Bush, who also counseled Monica Lewinsky and Michael Vick, and worked on the prosecution of former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry.
Love her. We will definitely be giving this show a chance.
