at . Comments

Scandal, a new series from Shonda Rhimes, is coming to ABC midseason (early 2012). It revolves around the life and work of a crisis manager and her staff.

Kerry Washington stars as Olivia Pope, a former PR consultant to the President who can't seem to cut ties with her past - professionally and personally.

Pope's dysfunctional team - who specialize in fixing people's lives, but can't quite rectify their own - include Lost's Henry Ian Cusick as Stephen Finch, Columbus Short as Harrison Wright, Guillermo Diaz as Huck, Darby Stanchfield as Abby and Katie Lowes as Quinn.

Ghost's Tony Goldwyn takes on the role of President Fitzgerald Grant.

Check it out the preview after the jump and see what you think of this new series from the Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice creator. Think it's worth a look?
