Submitted by on June 17, 2015 – 8:28 amNo Comment

HBO is in the process of shooting a new original film called Confirmation, which takes on the 1991 Clarence Thomas sexual harassment scandal that came to light as part of his Supreme Court Justice confirmation hearing. According to Deadline.com:

The film details the explosive 1991 confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas (Wendell Pierce) that were rocked by testimony by Oklahoma law professor Anita Hill (Kerry Washington), which brought the country to a standstill and forever changed the way we think about sexual harassment, victims’ rights and modern race relations.

In one of the first images released from the movie’s set, Kerry as Anita is seen standing behind a podium wearing a hairstyle nearly identical to that of Anita’s during the period when her face was a staple of the front page of newspapers worldwide.

Confirmation also stars Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Hudson, Eric Stonestreet, Jeffrey Wright and Alison Wright.
