Before ‘Scandal’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ Shonda Rhimes had ‘Scandal High.’ The first episode of Shonda’s ‘teen drama’ premiered on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ on Oct. 29, and it was AMAZING. Click to WATCH!
There’s nothing like high school drama. Shonda Rhimes and Jimmy Kimmel took the cast of Scandal back to where it all began! As expected, the twists and turns in the halls of Scandal High School are crazier than we ever thought possible. In the first episode of the parody, Tony Goldwyn’s Hunter and Josh Malina’s Tanner get into a major fight!
First off, Michelle Branch’s “Goodbye To You” is playing, so you know Shonda’s taking it way back. Shonda, played by Kerry Washington, says the competition is heating up between Scandal High’s Hunter and Tanner. Hunter’s the high school quarterback, honor roll student and the ultimate heartthrob.
Hunter’s main enemy is Tanner, who just so happens to be his best friend. Tanner’s the local Instagram champ and a total player. Meanwhile, Guillermo Diaz and Katie Lowes play Scandal High’s resident computer geek and goth girl. And they’re in love, too.
Courtney (Darby Stanchfield) is crushing hard on Mr. Pepper (Jeff Perry), but he doesn’t feel the same about her. Nevertheless, watching her fawn over him is HI-LARIOUS. Blind Josh (Scott Foley) can’t physically see, but he can see everything else.
Things take a turn when Hunter finds out he got “super-dissed” by Tanner! “Hunter Sux” was spray-painted on the side of a wall. Harsh, dude! Tanner swears he was framed, but Hunter doesn’t believe him.
“The is the end ship to our friendship,” Hunter tells Tanner. And then, Hunter UNFOLLOWS Tanner on Instagram. GASP! DJ Detention (Cornelius Smith Jr.) plays Hunter’s current anthem, which is Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood.” Hunter and Tanner got problems, and I don’t think they can solve them — for now.
