UK air date for Scandal on More4 confirmed main image

Channel 4 have agreed a deal with ABC studios which will see Scandal come to the UK. Unlike many other new acquisitions, an air date has already been set for Scandal with the ABC show airing on Thursday 25th October at 9PM.

Scandal is another ABC show from creator Shonda Rhimes, who also created ABC's medical dramas Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice. However unlike Rhimes' other 2 ABC shows, Scandal is a political thriller centering around the behind-the-scenes machinations of ex-White House communications director and now high flying, crisis management firm owner Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and set in Washington DC. Olivia has dedicated her life to protecting the public images of the nation's elite and, together with her expert team, will do whatever it takes to keep their secrets under wraps. Her clients however, are not the only ones with secrets and she may need to exercise her best damage control skills to save herself.

Former communications director to the President of the United States, Olivia has left the White House to run her successful crisis management firm Pope & Associates but ex- boss, President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn - Ghost) and his chief of staff, Cyrus (Jeff Perry - Grey's Anatomy), are never far from her beat.
Hoping to start a new chapter in her life, both professionally and personally, she struggles to leave her past behind and her dysfunctional staff, who specialise in fixing other people's lives, can't quite fix the ones closest at hand - their own.
Olivia's accomplished and dedicated staff include Stephen Finch (Henry Ian Cusick) who has dated his share of women but is trying to settle down and have a family; Harrison Wright (Columbus Short), a slick litigator; Huck (Guillermo Diaz), hacker extraordinaire; investigator Abby Whelan (Darby Stanchfield) who has an enduring crush on Stephen; and Quinn Perkins (Katie Lowes) the new young woman in the office who is in awe of Olivia, but is initiated in a trial by fire on her very first day on the job.
