Could Comedian Chris Rock Be Serious About Trump Cancelling The American Political Show ‘Scandal’?
Well, we all know comedian Chris Rock and him trying to crack joke with all most everything within his reach, that’s why so many may not be taken his recent alarm seriously.
Chris Rock took to his twitter handle yesterday to announce that US president Donald Trump has just canceled the ABC drama American reality TV show ‘Scandal’ 2017.
The comedian has refused to throw more light on the claim even as some fans told him that it wasn’t funny to raise such alarm.
However, Season 6, of the TV drama -‘Scandal’ 2017 is to kick off today Thursday, January 26, 2017 with the episode 1- ‘Survival of the Fittest’
“Scandal” 2017 episode 1 will start off with the results of the presidential election ie the show’s presidential election.
The first five episodes of “Scandal” 2017 according to the show creator Shonda Rhimes were filmed before the real-life 2016 America election.
Speaking fortnight ago at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, Rhimes revealed that the political drama that will play out during the show will draw no parallels to President-elect Donald Trump or Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
She stated “I don’t really equate the two.“Scandal” and the election. “That’s not really the goal. If that were the goal, we would have waited until after the election to write about the election.”
The first episode of “Scandal” 2017 will start with the results of the characters Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) and Frankie Vargas (Ricardo Chavira). And Rhimes insisted the show’s presidential hopefuls were not inspired by Clinton or Trump.
Adding; “There aren’t any similarities,”. “I don’t think the candidates have any similarities … these candidates don’t equate so I don’t think you can correlate the two.”
On her part, Young, who plays the role of a former First Lady running for president (like Clinton), noted that the TV world is completely fiction.
She said; “You’ll find out the results of the election immediately, but we’ll go back in time and find out what happened to those characters in those moments. That kind of storytelling finds a new way in Season 6 of the ‘Scandal’ 2017″
While President Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) who will be out of the White House in Season 6 of ‘Scandal’ 2017 explained that; “In counterpoint to this crazy political world America is living through, it’s interesting, but they’re not the same.”
While Joe Morton was of the opinion that some viewers may not even want to watch “Scandal” 2017, despite being fictional. Stressing “I think the audience is going to watch what makes them feel well.”
“Some people may want to watch something that has nothing to do with politics simply because of what’s going on in the world … there is no real similarity between what’s happening in the real world and our show.”
Speaking different to reporters, one of the show panelists Kerry Washington careful explained “I think we have to be careful by saying that the results of this election represent the majority of the sentiment of the country because half the country didn’t vote, and half of who voted, not even — the popular vote went to Hillary,” Washington said.
“So we’re talking about less than the quarter voted for our next president. And I also think it’s important to say that exclusivity is not just about people of color and women. Inclusivity is about everyone having a seat at the table. It doesn’t mean keep white people out, or men don’t have a voice. Everyone should have a voice at the table.”
