Kerry Washington‘s high school drama “Five Points” is heading to new Facebook show platform Watch.

The 10-episode series from creator Adam Giaudrone (“Being Mary Jane”) centers on five students at a South Side Chicago high school who each share a different perspective on a life-changing incident.

Indigenous Media and Washington’s Simpson Street are behind the project. Executive producers include Washington, Jon Avnet (“Black Swan”), Rodrigo Garcia (“In Treatment”), Jake Avnet and Simpson Street’s Pilar Savone.

Thomas Carter (“Save the Last Dance”) directs and executive produces the series, which starts production this week. Giaudrone writes and executive produces, while Sage Scroope and Ben Fast produce for Indigenous.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to partner with Indigenous and Facebook in order to tell this important, thought provoking and compelling story,” Washington said.

Watch on Facebook launched in August and includes such offerings as “Ball in the Family,” centering on the home life of Los Angeles Lakers rising star Lonzo Ball.
