“Escandalo” re-imagines the ABC drama as a Mexican soap opera
Sex. Power. Corruption. Lies. Poison blow darts. Futbol. Jicama juice. “Escandalo” has absolutely everything you could ever want in a television show.

With “Scandal” star Kerry Washington joining him on his late night show (following the mid-season premiere of her Shondaland drama, of course), Jimmy Kimmel put the star power to good use. After a discussion about the DC-set soap’s various international dubs, Kimmel and Washington cut to what they called the Mexican version of the show — which, of course, just happened to star the host’s sidekick Guillermo and featured plot twists straight out of a campy telenovela.
