Kerry Washington is keeping very busy in a post-Scandal world, setting another project.
She’ll star in and produce the series adaptation of the 2011 Boom Studios graphic novel, Old City Blues.
The project keeps her at Hulu, where she’s also starring in and producing a limited series adaptation of Little Fires Everywhere with Reese Witherspoon.
Here’s what THR, who exclusively reported the news, describes the story: Set in the year 2048 and is set in New Athens, on the ruins that once was known as Greece but is now crawling with high-tech criminals including smugglers, drug dealers and corrupt politicians and powerful corporations. The potential series revolves around Solano, Thermidor and the rest of the New Athens Special Police to keep the city in check after the cyborg founder of a tech company is found dead.
Washington’s role is unknown right now. The project is still in development, but a writers room has already been set up for the potential series.
