What? Scandal: Gladiator Wanted
Who? Created and Directed by Darby Stanchfield. Written by Juan Carlos Fernandez. Starring: Guillermo Diaz, Katie Lowes, Cornelius Smith Jr. and George Newbern. Produced by Shondaland and ABC Studios.
Why Should I Watch? Need something to tide you over until this week’s new episode of Scandal? The web series premiered on January 19th, in anticipation of #TGIT coming back full force with season six’s return.
The web series focuses on finding a suitable (and worthy) intern for Oliva Pope & Associates and is directed by a Gladiator herself, Stanchfield, who plays Abby Whelan. As fans know, working for OPA is not an easy task. Interns included. Tune in and see if your favorite (or any) intern makes the cut. While the series often seems too short (for my liking…I want more), it offers a needed reminder of the humor and tone from the good ole’ days at OPA. Catch up before Thursday’s new episode of Scandal – and if you haven’t checked the TV series out…Well, do it.
Where Can I Watch? The six-episode series is available over at ABC.com, by downloading ABC’s app or checking it out below! Happy viewing Gladiators.
