If you thought Scandal star Kerry Washington had time to play only one of the Beltway’s most influential women, think again.

On Wednesday, HBO revealed the first image of Washington in character as Anita Hill for the upcoming movie TV movie Confirmation.

Erin Brockovich scribe Susannah Grant wrote the historical drama, which stars Washington, 38, as the woman who in 1991 accused Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment.

Washington, who is also serving as executive producer, also shared the image and thanked HBO for the opportunity to take on this role in an Instagram she that she signed “K-Dub (aka super excited Exec Producer).”

Confirmation also stars Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Hudson, Modern Family‘s Eric Stonestreet, Boardwalk Empire‘s Jeffrey Wright and The Americans‘ Alison Wright.
