Seven has scheduled US series Scandal to premiere next Monday night, to replace GCB which has now wrapped up (and no second season).
The political drama comes from Shonda Rhimes (Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice) and stars Kerry Washington.
The show premiered in the US in April and has been approved for a second season.
Olivia Pope is the former communications director to the President and she and her team will do whatever it takes to make their clients’ problems go away. Young lawyer Quinn Perkins is offered a job with Olivia Pope’s firm and Quinn is in awe. Olivia’s former boss, President Fitzgerald Grant, and his chief of staff, Cyrus Beene, are never far from her beat – and when a White House intern accuses the President of having an affair, Olivia is the only one they trust to diffuse the problem. But the news hits close to home for Olivia, and Quinn soon realises Olivia’s clients aren’t the only ones with secrets.
