Oscar and Tony winner Denzel Washington – during a Q&A at University of Southern California, last September – says that he will executive produce all ten of the Pulitzer winner’s plays for HBO.
Deadline shared Washington’s statements.
“I’m directing, producing — and acting in one (Fences) — and I’m executive producing the other nine,” he told Boyd and the crowd during “An Evening With Denzel Washington” at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. “I’m really excited about that — that [the estate] would put that in my hands and trust me,” Washington said tonight. “That’s good enough for me. It doesn’t get any better than that.”
The premium network would roll out one film a year, Washington said.
