TV’s it girl Shonda Rhimes is gearing up for the debut of her latest drama, Scandal, which premires April 5 on ABC.

The show, which stars Kerry Washington and Columbus Short, is about a D.C. political crisis management expert who handles potentially explosive (and embarrassing) cases for many of the city’s elite.

Scandal is based on the real-life exploits of Judy Smith, one of D.C.’s biggest power players. Smith worked as a White House aid to President George H. W. Bush, and served as counsel to Michael Vick, Monica Lewinsky, and former D.C. mayor Mayor Marion Barry.

Scandal is Rhimes’ third series for ABC and will begin airing April 5 at 10 pm.
