"Scandal," ABC

Why this show? Because creator Shonda Rhimes already found a reason to do it on "Grey's Anatomy," and the tormented love between the characters seem ripe for musical adaptation.

Possible plot: Hacker genius Huck (Guillermo Diaz), in one of his torturer shame spirals, fantasizes about the show's characters in vaudeville-style numbers. Master fixer Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) performs a burlesque number, the president of the United States Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) throws knives at his conniving wife Mellie (Bellamy Young) and Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry) plays a violent clown.

Odds: Medium. Just when you think "Scandal" won't go there...
