Kerry Washington as Anita Hill in HBO Movie

Kerry Washington to Star as Anita Hill in HBO Movie 'Confirmation'

Kerry Washington is headed to HBO.

The Scandal star has signed on to play Anita Hill and executive produce a TV movie for the premium cable network, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Called Confirmation, the telepic — which is in development from HBO Films — will detail the explosive 1991 Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination hearings (at which Hill testified), which brought the country to a standstill and forever changed the way people think about sexual harassment, victims' rights and modern-day race relations.
