In ABC’s new drama Scandal it appears that everyone in Washington DC has a secret, and Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) has dedicated her life to protecting and defending the public images of the nation’s elite and keeping those secrets under wraps.
The series is loosely based on the real life of Judy Smith, the founder and President of Impact Strategies, a leading strategic and crisis communications firm with offices in Washington DC and Los Angeles.
“Actress Kerry Washington probably never imagined that being involved in “Scandal” would also give her a place in history, but that is exactly where it has landed her. As the star in the upcoming network drama, “Scandal”, Washington is only the second African-American woman to star in a network drama, and she’s bringing her A-Game to the role.”
