Which Scandal Character Might Inspire a Spinoff for ABC?
Creator Shonda Rhimes has ideas for the next chapter of Scandal
Scandal may not last that much longer on ABC, but that doesn’t mean the characters have to go away, too.
“I have my own obsessions with B613 that are probably unhealthy,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “I have like three versions of a B613 spinoff in my head that I obsess about constantly.”
For the (tragically!) uninitiated, B613 is a covert government agency run by Olivia’s (Washington) father Rowan Pope (Joe Morton). No one seems to be able to control the rogue and downright frightening organization – even President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) himself.
That said, the pipe dream of creating a B613 spinoff may have to stay like that for now.
“I have some jobs, as you may notice, and not a lot of time to do some new jobs,” said Rhimes, who continues to oversee Grey’s Anatomy as well as her newest drama, How to Get Away with Murder.
“What I love is how supportive ABC is and how great (ABC Entertainment Group president) Paul Lee is. Paul says … he wants Grey’s to run forever and he’d love Scandal to run forever. I think I just got a 20-season pickup for all my shows!”
