Actress Kerry Washington is known for her work on the big screen, but now the “For Colored Girls” actress is planning to make her small screen debut as Olivia Price in “Grey’s Anatomy” creator Shonda Rhimes’ new ABC pilot, “In Crisis.”

The drama will tell the real-life story of Judy Smith, a professional crisis fixer, who coached Monica Lewinsky and former Washington D.C. Mayor Marion Barry through their infamous scandals. Rhimes has also nabbed Columbus Short to play a lawyer on Washington’s team. We bet this will make for a fascinating TV drama.

We’ll be watching this drama when it hits TV this fall. Remember the last time two Black leads were on a TV show? R.I.P. “Undercovers.”
