From the creator and executive producers of Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice comes a drama revolving around the life and work of a professional crisis manager and her dysfunctional staff.


Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) is a former Presidential media relations consultant who has dedicated her life to protecting and guarding the public images of America's high society elite. Pope opened her own consulting firm after leaving the White House, hoping to start a new chapter in her life not only professionally, but personally. However, no matter how hard she tries, cutting ties with her past seems to be easier said than done. As for her new staff, who specialize in fixing the lives of other people, the issues in their own lives turn out to be more challenging to fix than those of their clients.
