About Scandal

In the premiere episode, young lawyer Quinn Perkins (Katie Lowes) is offered a job with Olivia Pope & Associates, and she is in awe. Olivia and her team of “gladiators in suits” will do whatever it takes to make their clients’ problems go away, and newbie Quinn is initiated into the group with trial by fire on Day One — when a White House intern accuses the President of having an affair. Olivia is the only one the White House trusts to diffuse the problem, but as she gets deeper into the situation, Quinn soon realizes Olivia’s clients aren’t the only ones with secrets.
