Kerry Washington And Wendell Pierce Will Play In Confirmation, An Upcoming Film On HBO

Kerry Washington in Scandal

‘Scandal’ actress Kerry Washington and ‘The Wire’ actor Wendell Pierce will star in ‘Confirmation.’ It’s an upcoming American television drama film, directed by Rick Famuyiwa and written by Susannah Grant. The film will air on the cable network HBO in 2016.

The film is based on the life of Anita Hill, who became a national figure in 1991 because she accused U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, her supervisor at the U.S. Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, of sexual harassment.

Kerry Washington will play as Anita Hill, and Wendell Pierce as Clarence Thomas. The film also stars Zoe Lister-Jones as Harriet Grant, Erika Christensen as Shirley Weigand, Jennifer Hudson as Angela Wright, Greg Kinnear as Joe Biden, Jeffrey Wright as Charles Ogletree, Bill Irwin as John Danforth, and Eric Stonestreet as Kenneth Duberstein.

It seems that Kerry Washington was firstly in negotiations to play alongside Kate Hudson in Unforgettable (2016), but decided to use her hiatus from Scandal (2012) to make this film instead.

“Today there are people trying to take away rights that our mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers fought for: our right to vote, our right to choose, affordable quality education, equal pay, access to health care. We the people can’t let that happen.” Kerry Washington.

Rick Famuyiwa is a Nigerian-American Hollywood writer and director of films such as The Wood (1999), Talk to Me (2007), Brown Sugar (2002), and Dope (2015).

Remember that on May 7, 2015, ABC renewed Scandal for a fifth season. The writers began working on the fifth season on May 21, 2015 and it will premiere on September 24, 2015.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
