Kerry Washington & Scandal Co-Star Katie Lowes Will Produce A New Shondaland Dramedy! Find Out What It's About!

Filed under: TV NewsKerry WashingtonScandal

These actresses are putting on their producing hats!

These stars are over their close-ups!

Well, not really! They're just switching things up by working behind the camera instead of in front of it! On Tuesday, it was revealed that Scandal co-stars Kerry Washington and Katie Lowes are tackling different roles on a new Shonda Rhimes show, but we aren't talking about portraying characters!

The lovely ladies will serve as executive producers on an upcoming Shondaland dramedy for ABC! How exciting!

The untitled television show will reportedly center on a group of young nannies, and is described as "an edgy and comical upstairs-downstairs look at the insanity of modern child-rearing."

It seems all the excitement, hilarity, and of course, drama will stem from the support staffs who are "trying to help the kids grow up when they haven't yet quite grown up themselves."

Sounds AH-mazing!

Plus, with Kerry and Katie at the wheel alongside Shonda, Betsy Beers, Adam Shapiro, and Bess Wohl — who is actually writing the script — there's a pretty strong team in place!

It'll be interesting to see if it gets picked up, considering the powerhouse producer has a few other projects also in development. But we hope it does because we're dying to see what the actresses are like behind the scenes!

Perez Reviews: American Hero

american hero

Every ten years or so comes a movie or a play that attempts to illustrate what life is truly like today.

Thankfully, American Hero, currently playing at 2econd Stage Theater Uptown, does it very very well!

Like a more current and funnier American Beauty, the show is filled with characters who have crushed dreams, failed relationships and so much more!

Whereas a few years ago a similar play may have been darker and more cynical, American Hero is filled with moments of hope and almost non-stop laughter.

Telling the equally bizarre and somehow all-too-realistic tale of three workers at a fancy sandwich shop, playwright Bess Wohl masterfully mines the everyday and mundane into comedic brilliance.

Who knew making a sandwich could be so funny???

The show is about the big and the small. The good and the bad. Working together as a team and how sometimes we get the best of ourselves and each other.

A lot to explore in just 90 minutes with no intermission! A feat executed under the direction of Leigh Silverman.

Thankfully this show has a great cast - all who do a wonderful job. They include Jerry O'Connell, Daoud Heidami and Erin Wilhelmi.

AND Ari Graynor delivers an inspired and revelatory performance as a loose mother who is down on her luck and even more down on herself.

Sitting in that audience we were IN AWE of her comedic timing. Her complete immersion in this character. The way she was able to be big and ballsy yet also intimate and authentic.

She was so invested in every moment! It was a pleasure and a privilege to get to watch her do this part.

Ari Graynor is a superstar! We can't wait until the rest of the world finds out!!!
