Kerry Washington is adding another title to her already busy career. The Scandal star is moving from acting to producing a new series for ABC.

Earlier this year, Washington signed a development deal with the network, and now she is set to executive-produce a new drama, Patrol. According to Variety, Patrol is a drama about four female police officers who, after not seeing each other since attending the police academy five years earlier, are thrown together by a scandal.


Washington will produce the series under her newly formed production company, Simpson Street.
