ABC is continuing to roll out trailers from their new lineup of shows which were announced earlier today. Take a look at these new video glimpses at the upcoming programs Scandal, from Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes, and Work It from Friends producers Andrew Reich & Ted Cohen.


From the creator and executive producers of Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice comes a drama revolving around the life and work of a professional crisis manager and her dysfunctional staff. A former media relations consultant to the President, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) 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. Scandal stars Kerry Washington (Ray) as Olivia Pope, Henry Ian Cusick (Lost) as Stephen Finch, Columbus Short (Stomp the Yard) as Harrison Wright, Guillermo Diaz as Huck, Darby Stanchfield as Abby Whelan, Katie Lowes as Quinn Perkins, Tony Goldwyn as President Fitzgerald Grant and Jeff Perry (Grey's Anatomy) as Cyrus. Scandal was written by Shonda Rhimes (Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice). Paul McGuigan is the director. Scandal is produced by ABC Studios.

Work It

This high-concept comedy centers on two unrepentant guy's guys who, unable to find work, dress as women to get jobs as pharmaceutical reps. Not only do they pull it off, but they might just learn to be better men in the process. With unemployment an ongoing issue and women now outnumbering men in the workforce, the new comedy series Work It follows two alpha males who realize the only way to beat the current "mancession" and land a job in pharmaceutical sales is to pass themselves off as women. Combining all the best elements of the workplace comedy, the buddy comedy and the family comedy, Work It centers on Lee Standish (Benjamin Koldyke) -- a quick-witted and likable family man who used to be a top car salesman until he got laid off -- and Angel Ortiz (Benjamin Koldyke) -- a single, hot-headed ladies' man with no filter -- who quickly learn there are fundamental differences in the worlds of men and women that go beyond teetering in high heels and tightening up with Spanx. Lee and Angel are determined to keep their ruse going for as long as they can -- and keep their newly found jobs - in this smart, funny and relevant look at male and female relationships at work, at home and socially. Being a better man sometimes means having to be a better woman. The show stars Benjamin Koldyke as Lee, Benjamin Koldyke as Angel, Beth Lacke ("Happy Hour") as Connie, John Caparulo as Brian, Rebecca Mader ("No Ordinary Family") as Grace, Rochelle Aytes ("Detroit 1-8-7") as Vanessa, Kate Reinders ("Modern Family") as Kelly, Kirstin Eggers as Kristin and Kacie Lynch as Kat. Work It was written by Andrew Reich & Ted Cohen ("Friends"). Andrew Reich & Ted Cohen are the executive producers. Beth McCarthy-Miller ("30 Rock") is the director. Work It is produced by Bonanza Productions, Inc. in association with Summer School Productions and Warner Bros. Television.

                scandal - it's exactly why we have no moral compass in this country anymore. act first, think second, get out of consequences third. i have no desire to watch a show that will feature people getting out of evil decisions that should cost them everything.

                work it - pass. there is no way this premise could carry past one season. at some point they have reveal their gender and begin again in the office and let the male/female rivalry begin. this is a BAD bossom buddies redux.
