Kerry Washington is busy making mogul moves! The “Scandal” star inked a two-year overall deal with ABC. And we’ve got the deets. More inside…
As if she hasn’t already made several boss moves in her career, Kerry Washington just inked a major new deal.
According to Deadline, the “Scandal” starlet just inked a two-year overall deal with ABC!
So, what does that mean? It means the 39-year-old actress will develop new projects for the network through her recently launched Simpson Street production company, named after the street her mom grew up on in the Bronx. Nice!
The Movado ambassador following in the footsteps of big shots like “black-ish” and Barbershop: The Next Cut writer Kenya Barris who signed a deal with ABC, and 50 Cent who nabbed a deal with STARZ.
The Neutrogena brand ambassador has reportedly brought in executive producer Sharla Sumpter Bridgett as development executive/producing partner at Simpson Street.
We already got a taste of the type of work Simpson Street can produce. The production company, along with HBO Films and a few others, was behind the HBO movie Confirmation (pre-deal), where Kerry starred as Anita Hill.
We’re sure Kerry and Simpson Street will be bringing a plethora of new films that will tell the many stories that go untold. And we’re here for it all. Let the #BlackGirlmagic ensue!
By the way, a new episode of “Scandal” airs tomorrow night at 9pm EST on ABC.
