Judy Smith, the crisis communications expert who was not only the inspiration for Scandal but who serves as a co-executive producer of the series, is getting a new mystery movie based on her real life.
The plot, according to a statement from Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Network Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks, will follow the story of Sydney Polk, who is based on Smith:
“The Adjuster” centers on a burned-out ex-district attorney and single mom Sydney Polk, who moves with her two teenage sons to a small town seeking a simpler life. However, she ends up finding more drama than she anticipated while working on her weekly podcast “Problem Solved,” where everyday people call in to share their own personal problems. Sydney was born to help people and turning anyone away isn’t in her DNA but as her life gets more chaotic, can she be “The Adjuster” of her own life?
Vicary also praised Smith in the statement, saying, “Judy Smith is a brilliant visionary whose historic work has become legendary. We are thrilled to welcome her to the Hallmark family and we expect our viewers to be swept away by her unique, smart storytelling that people will rave about!”
