Kerry Washington is set to produce 24-7, a workplace comedy acquired by UniversalWashington will produce through her production Simpson Street alongside Eva Longoria and Ben Spector who are producing through their UnbeliEVAble Entertainment banner. 

Sarah Rothschild (Awesomeness TV’s Love, Unscripted ) is writing the script, expanding on her pitch.

As of right now we don’t have the full synopsis of the film; however, we are certainly excited about this new project!

Last year, Washington signed an overall deal with ABC Studios for her newly launched production company Simpson Street (named after the street where Washington’s mom grew up in the Bronx).  Under the two-year agreement, Simpson Street will develop broadcast, cable and digital projects exclusively for ABC Studios and ABC Signature.  Washington is also executive producing ABC drama project Patrol, about four female LAPD officers, which is written by Chitra Elizabeth Sampath.  Simpson Street’s first movie was the HBO film Confirmation, in which Washington starred as attorney and academic Anita Hill, and she is currently developing feature films based on the books The City of Saints and Thieves with Will Packer and Universal; The Perfect Mother, which is set up at TriStar; and The Mothers at Warner Bros. The Scandal star is also part of the voice cast of Disney’s upcoming Cars 3.
