Written by Turner, Controversy centers on a successful crisis-management consultant brought in to advise a university when a co-ed accuses football players of gang-raping her. Facing a crisis of conscience, she partners with a lawyer for the university to seek out the truth.
Smith, who was the inspiration for the lead character in Shonda Rhimes’ Scandal, is a real-life top crisis-management consultant who has worked with a number of high-profile clients, including universities.
