Facebook is continuing its push into scripted programming with an order for a drama series that boasts “Scandal” star Kerry Washington among its executive producers, Variety has learned exclusively.
Titled “Five Points,” the series is set on the South Side of Chicago and takes a look at high school students from five unique points of view. When a life changing event occurs, all of these different perspectives will be necessary to understand the truth. The cast currently includes “CSI: Cyber” alum Hayley Kiyoko and actress and model Madison Pettis. It will air on Watch, Facebook’s new platform for original shows.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to partner with Indigenous and Facebook in order to tell this important, thought provoking and compelling story,” Washington said
