I’m not sure if I’ve ever been so excited about a piece of gossip as this. If you haven’t heard yet, there is rather credible information being leaked about a potential new TV drama inspired by the career of Judy Smith, a legendary public relations consultant who specializes in crisis communications and has a portfolio of scandalous clients including Bill Clinton and Michael Vick, among others. There are other “reality” shows that chronicle the lives of the rich and fabulous people of PR (ahem, Spin Crowd on the E! Network), but this is rumored to be a Law & Order-esque drama created by none other than the woman behind the popular Grey’s Anatomy, Shonda Rhimes.
The show, which development trackers have been calling In Crisis, is being developed for the 2011-2012 TV season and should air on ABC.
What do you think? Would you watch a non-reality show based on the public relations industry??
