Okay okay okay, get this -- there has been a gladiator-sized hole in my heart since "Scandal" left our airwaves, but I have some breaking news: there is a new fixer coming to town!
 
 
 
That’s right, make way for our new obsession, "Flack". "Flack" is all about the wild and ruthless world of celebrity PR and the people behind our most beloved stars. I may go so far as to say that I think I’m more excited for this show than I was for "Scandal". It’s putting all of my favorite things together: celebrities, scandal, British accents, and, of course, Anna Paquin.
 
Yes, the "True Blood" alum will be starring in "Flack" as “an American publicist living in London who is an expert in her craft, but a complete self-saboteur when it comes to her personal life.”
 
Her character’s name is Robyn, and she’s an all-star PR strategist trying to hold her high-profile clients' lives together in a world where everyone is watching. The rest of the cast is also amazing. It includes Rebecca Benson, Lydia Wilson, Sophie Okonedo, and will feature guest star and Emmy Award-winning actor Bradley Whitford!
 
"Flack" premieres Thursday, February 21, on Pop and will run 6 hour-long episodes. Not enough, in my opinion, but I’ll take what I can get!
