... you've never heard of.
When it comes to crisis management, nobody does it like Olivia Pope. Kerry Washington stars as Pope, who's based on real-life crisis management expert Judy Smith, in Shonda Rhimes new series Scandal.
No problem - whether it's politics, sports, business or show business - is too big for her Washington, D.C.-based firm to handle. But just to be clear ... they are lawyers, but this is not a law firm.
"When you can't go to a publicist, when you can't go to a lawyer, when you can't go to the cops, you come to us and we fix it," Washington says of her character and her associates.
Of course, in typical Grey's Anatomy / Private Practice fashion, "Olivia is full of contradictions. In her professional life she is always the smartest woman in the room. In her personal life she's a total mess."
Rhimes' latest series debuts April 5 on ABC. Will you watch? Here's a preview:
