Kerry Washington and Viola Davis Ink Individual Overall Deals With ABC Studios. The production companies are up and running. Kerry’s first project was the Anita Hill film Confirmation. Viola with Lila & Eve.

I believe strongly in the importance of having a seat at the table which makes starting this production company thrilling for me. It’s an honor to be at a point in my career when I can help generate projects that that are exciting, necessary, and truly reflect the world around us,” Washington said in a statement. “I’m grateful to be on this journey with ABC, a network that remains unparalleled in its commitment to inclusive storytelling.”

We started JuVee because we wanted to see narratives that reflected our multi-ethnic and multifaceted culture,” said Davis. “We wanted to be a part of classic storytelling, and we didn’t want to wait.”

When I first started out, I said, “I want to be a serious actress. Like Cicely Tyson in ‘Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman’. It’s not about awards, I don’t want none of that, I want people to throw roses at me on stage.” And then I look back at my high school photo, and my ambition underneath, and what does it say? It says, “I just want to be rich and famous.”
