\When it comes to getting it done, Kerry Washington has it handled. The award-winning actress is taking on Hollywood full force, by the way of online media services. This week, news outlets confirmed that the actress will not only star in, but will also executive produce Hulu’s ‘Little Fires Everywhere’ alongside Reese Witherspoon. The eight-episode series is based on Celeste Ng’s 2017 bestseller book with the same name. The chronicle traces the fallout in a suburban Ohio community after a single mother and her child move into town and a custody battle erupts over a Chinese-American baby.
And she’s not stopping there! Washington is expanding her growing relationship with Hulu by also producing the Hulu streaming series ‘Old City Blues’, an in-depth story about a corrupt dystopian society set in 2048. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 2011 published story written by Giannis Milonogiannis, takes place 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, who endeavor to keep the city in check after the cyborg founder of a tech company is found dead. As of now, the project is still underway, so it is unclear what role Kerry will take on. Whatever role it is though, we know it’s going to be good.
