Scandal (2012)

Kerry Washington as "Olivia Pope"

"Grey's Anatomy" creator Shonda Rhimes returns with another drama for ABC. Olivia Pope, a former media consultant to the president, is ready to move on with her life and opens her own crisis-management firm, but she can't seem to shake ties with her past. Olivia's staff includes opinionated investigator Abby and hacker extraordinaire Huck. As she moves forward it becomes clear that, while her staffers may specialize in cleaning up the lives of other people, they can't seem to do the same for themselves.
