Columbus short is making his way back to the small screen this spring.

According to E!, the former Scandal star will join the cast of TV One’s horror film, Fear Files

The short film, a second installment in TV One’s original horror film franchise, will see Short playing City Councilman Harvey Jordan. 

The story follows Councilman Jordan as he meets resistance due to his plans to build a football field in a low income neighborhood. When the last person standing in his way dies in a mysterious fire, people begin to question whether the death was an accident or a part of a plan carried out by Jordan.

Fear Files will serve as Short’s return to TV following an abrupt exit from Scandal after facing domestic and substance abuse issues. 

The Fear Files trilogy will premiere Friday March 13 at 8 p.m. on TV One.
