‘Scandal’ Watch Series Becomes Interactive In Washington, DC For Season Premiere
From Black Enterprise
Imagine merging the book club concept and television viewing party concept. What if this new cultural interactive event was framed around the ABC hit series Scandal? It could be quite the social media phenomenon. Cultural architect Risikat “Kat” Okedeyi of LiL SoSo Productions, Inc., and Capitol Hill power couple Danielle and Aisha Moodie-Mills of the weekly politics and pop culture show Politini, will produce and curate a weekly Scandal Watch.
“This event is a tremendous way to catalyze culture and community in the new, fashionably political Washington, or Poliwood, as we call it,” says Danielle. Aisha adds, “Politini sparks dialogue that integrates our social, cultural, and political selves, so it’s exciting to construct a salon that galvanizes the enthusiasm of all layers of D.C.—Politicos, Creatives, and Social Entrepreneurs alike.”
The Scandal Watch kick-off will coincide with the season premiere of the popular television drama (now in its third season) on October 3rd in Washington, DC. The event will begin with an exclusive live streamed videotaping of Politini, featuring a panel of political and cultural influencers who will turn a critical eye on Scandal to discuss how creator/writer Shonda Rhimes’ (also of ABC TV’s Grey’s Anatomyfame) multi-ethnic and multi-dimensional characters defy stereotypes and shift culture.
