The TV world is all a buzz about Shonda Rhimes’ new mid-season drama Scandal, starring movie actress Kerry Washington.  Promising to be another Shonda Rhimes hit–if not familiar Rhimes created Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice–Washington’s titled character is based on crisis-management power house Judy Smith.
