“Scandal” actress plays Anita Hill in film based on 1991 Supreme Court nomination hearings
“Dope” writer, director and producer Rick Famuyiwa is set to direct the HBO film.
“Confirmation” details the explosive 1991 Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill Supreme Court nomination hearings, which brought the country to a standstill and forever changed the way we think about sexual harassment, victims rights and modern-day race relations.
Production of the HBO Films project in association with ABC Signature Studios is set to being in early summer.
Pierce, known for “Treme” and CBS’ current sitcom “The Odd Couple,” is represented by Paradigm.
