‘Scandal’ Takes on Donald Trump
Scandal is definitely tapping into today’s political landscape with their upcoming episode.
Thursday’s plot-twisting show will feature a Donald Trump-like character and shake things up with a life-imitating-art concept, reports Variety.
Tuesday, attendees of the PaleyFest were treated to a screener of this week’s episode and without giving any spoilers, Shonda Rhimes shared that the real-life debates did cause a few changes in the storyline.
Kerry Washington teased, “You think the debates you’ve seen in the real world are fun!”
The political show has displayed its creativity and intellectual approach by incorporating real-life social issues, such as the episode inspired by the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson.
With the current hostile presidential race, it’ll be interesting to see how the Trump-inspired character will roll into the story and just how scandalous things can be.
