Starring:  Kerry Washington, Darby Stanchfield, Katie Lowes, Tony Goldwyn, Guillermo Diaz, Joshua Malina, Jeff Perry

The first of two shows from creator Shonda Rimes to appear on this list of the best TV show dramas on Netflix comes ABC’s Scandal. Kerry Washington stars as Olivia Pope, the former White House Communications Director who begins her own crisis management firm.

If you’re a powerful person, including the President, the first person you turn to is Olivia Pope who makes a career out of trusting her instincts and ‘fixing’ things. She stops things in their tracks before they become full-blown disasters and career-ending mistakes, but Pope quickly learns on her first day things won’t be easy when the President is met with an ugly accusation.

You’ll sit down to watch one episode and before you know it, you’re addicted and can’t walk away from the addicting material, because you just have to find out what happens next.
