Denzel Washington has, interestingly, signed up to direct an episode of ABC’s Shonda Rhimes medical drama series, “Grey’s Anatomy” for Season 12.
Washington will direct this season’s 9th episode from a script penned by Stacy McKee, which will shoot later this month.
This will be Washington’s very first time directing for TV. He has of course directed two feature films – “Antwone Fisher” and “The Great Debaters.”
Up next? Maybe he’ll direct an episode of “Empire.” You never know…
Next spring, Washington will direct himself and Viola Davis in a film adaptation of August Wilson’s “Fences” for HBO.
