Who knew Shonda Rhimes could write an ABC series actually starring (wait for it) a Black woman? All snarkiness aside, the Emmy-award winning writer (Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice) is back at the Disney-owned ABC with another series called “Scandal.” The series will star actress Kerry Washington.
According to the entertainment blog Madame Noire:
The drama will star actress Kerry Washington, cutie Columbus Short, and a slew of others who play employees at a crisis-management firm; a bunch of shiny-suit wearing PR folks who work in fixing up the disastrous mistakes and moves of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Washington fills big shoes playing the head of the firm and the former consultant to the President of the United States, Olivia Pope.
