Kerry Washington has signed on to play the lead in Shonda Rhimes’ drama pilot for ABC, tentatively titled “In Crisis.” The series is inspired by and based on the career of famous crisis management consultant Judy Smith.
The show revolves around the life and work of a professional image “fixer” (renamed Olivia Price) and her dysfunctional staff. Olivia Price is described as something of a legend, a formidable, driven, insightful, intuitive and fearless woman.
Actor Columbus Short is set to co-star in the pilot as a lawyer on her team. SOURCE
Here’s to hoping ABC picks up the pilot!
Shonda Rhimes, of course, created the hit show “Grey’s Anatomy.”
