ABC’s “Scandal” heads over to the BET Network

KERRY WASHINGTON, TONY GOLDWYN

The Viacom-owned cable network has acquired off-network rights to ABC’s breakout hit Scandal, Reports The Hollywood Reporter.

BET will début the first two seasons of Scandal with a marathon starting in August, continuing to air episodes up until the third-season première on ABC in the fall. There has not yet been a season 3 première date announced. Scandal marks BET’s first syndicated scripted drama acquisition. If you happen to miss a new episode of Scandal, don’t worry because BET will air the episode after it ends on ABC.
