Scandal is a 60 minute drama series on ABC about a former Communications Director for the President of the United States who uses her experience as a "problem fixer" to open her own crisis management company. She excels at making problems go away for her clients before anyone else even hears of them.

It becomes obvious where the inspiration for Scandal came from when you learn about co-Executive Producer Judy Smith's background. She has worked in real life as a consultant for people and companies who have found themselves in crisis situations that made national or worldwide news! Some of her clients included Clinton White House intern "Monica Lewinsky", the family of Chandra Levy who was murdered after an affair with married Congressman Gary Condit (who has been cleared of the murder), Michael Vick after he was caught participating in an illegal dog-fighting ring and British Pretoleum (BP) after one of its offshore drilling rigs in the Gulf of Mexico exploded resulting in the deaths of 11 people/injuring 16 others/and doing massive environmental damage to much of the Gulf Coast.
