Kerry Washington goes Hollywood mogul with slate of new movie and TV projects
For all those lamenting the loss of our favorite gladiator Kerry Washington now that Scandal has ended have no fear because the award-winning actress has several new projects in the works.
Washington has been tapped to produce the Hulu streaming series Old City Blues about a corrupt dystopian society set in 2048.
Washington not only has her hands full as a mom of two toddlers, but she’s tackling two other shows she signed on to produce as well.
Old City Blues is a futuristic story set in New Athens atop the remnants of Greece, filled with high-tech bad guys, smugglers, drug dealers and corrupt politicians, according to the Daily Mail.
The premise of the show reportedly revolves around a special police force trying to keep the city from being over run by criminals after the founder of a tech company is killed.
But exactly what role Washington will assume, remains a mystery for now. But it sounds like being a fixer again, would fit the bill.
In the book, two families come to know one another through their children and must pick sides in a surprising custody battle.
Washington is also taking her talents behind the camera working on the breakout Showtime series MILF and on Monday tweeted:
“The adventure continues. #KerryDirectsSMILF.”
And in October, Kerry Washington will stretch her acting chops and head to Broadway to star in American Son.
“#Repost @simpsonstreet Broadway bound!!!! @AmericanSonPlay begins its limited run in less than 2 months. You don’t want to miss it! #AmericanSonPlay,” she shared along with a photo of her with co-star Steven Pasquale.
“he play is a gripping tale about who we are as a nation, and how we deal with family, relationships, love, loss and identity,” according to the American Son website (www.americansonplay.com).
And Kerry Washington’s Simpson Street just landed a pilot order at ABC for comedy Man of the House starring Alyson Hannigan.
We can’t wait!
