Olivia Pope is great and all, but she can't be on TV 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Shondaland has filled our cups to overflowing with no-nonsense heroines who cut through problems like a bunch of corgis through a snow trench.
Now, an upcoming Fox pilot could give us another Pope-like figure. The still-untitled project is from Scandal co-executive producer Judy Smith. Smith herself is the basis for Pope, using experiences from her time as a press aide in George H.W. Bush's administration. The lead fixer will be played by Archie Panjabi, late of The Good Wife. She'll play a character called in to deal with a campus rape scandal.
