Fast forward almost a year and I guess ABC is a bit more sure because “Scandal,” originally titled “Damage Control,” will finally make its debut on Thursday, April 5th.

According to Kerry, her character, Olivia Pope, will be a complex personality, full of contradictions. “In her professional life she is always the smartest woman in the room. In her personal life she’s a total mess.”
