With Scandal coming to an end of the season, it looks like Kerry Washington is quickly lining up projects!  Washington is officially set to executive produce a new ABC Family comedy series titled Man of the House.  

The series is about a teenage star quarterback who finds himself unexpectedly the only male in a house full of females when his recently-divorced mother moves in with her recently-divorced sister and their daughters.

Man Of the House falls under the overall deal Washington and her Simpson Street banner have at ABC Studios.

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 a feature film 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 busy Scandal star is also part of the voice cast of Disney’s upcoming Cars 3, is set to produce 24-7, a workplace comedy acquired by Universal, and will produce a south side of Chicago drama series for Facebook.
