The multiple-award winning actor will be calling shots in an episode that goes into production later this month.
Denzel Washington is expanding his TV resume with a gig on “Grey’s Anatomy”. The Oscar-winning actor is taking his first TV directing job on the ABC drama’s episode nine of the current 12th season.
Washington’s connection to “Grey’s Anatomy” is Debbie Allen who serves as a full-time executive producer. She has been put in charge to select episodic directors for the season. “I’m selecting the directors this season,” Allen told Variety. She was focused on putting women behind the lens. “Over our 24 episodes, 10 of them are directed by women, and I’m still looking,” she said.
Washington had directed two feature films in the past, the 2002’s “Antwone Fisher” and the 2007’s “The Great Debaters”. The “Grey’s Anatomy” episode he’s going to direct is yet to have a synopsis. Writer/producer Stacy McKee will write the episode which goes into production later this month.
