Grey's Anatomy creator and general television mastermind Shonda Rhimes has a new drama on ABC called Scandal
. With the season premiere debuting this Thursday, April 5, we thought we’d summarize five key points to consider going into the amazing (we’ve seen the pilot and we love it) first episode. Kerry Washington kicks ass.
Kerry’s last major TV role was as Chelina Hall on Boston Legal,
and, even though she was a courtroom killer back then, Chelina’s ballsiness is nothing compared to Kerry’s character on Scandal
. As Olivia Pope, Kerry plays a stern, serious, tough, frighteningly competent, powerfully intimidating former press secretary of the White House who has gone rogue in a very dangerous way. It’s difficult to pull off playing a tough woman while also remaining likeable, and Kerry Washington is definitely the woman for the job.
