A former media relations consultant to the President, Olivia Pope dedicates her life to protecting and defending the public images of our nation's elite. After leaving the White House, the power consultant opened her own firm, hoping to start a new chapter -- both professionally and personally -- but she can't seem to completely cut ties with her past. Slowly it becomes apparent that her staff, who specialize in fixing the lives of other people, can't quite fix the ones closest at hand -- their own.
Before it happened IRL, it happened on the small screen!

From “The West Wing’s” Josiah Bartlett, through “Scandal’s” Fitz Grant, to “Veep’s” Selena Meyer — these are the shows featuring the most notable fake U.S. presidents on television.
International Women's Day is a great opportunity to celebrate the wonderful female characters television has given us. This diverse collection of series feature women who are funny, brave, badass, and unapologetic.
