Regina King to Direct Episode Of ‘Scandal’

Gladiators, listen up.

The woman who gave us laughs in This Christmas and tears in Ray is now going to be bringing the drama to ABC’s hit show Scandal.

Regina King will direct the 16th episode of Scandal‘s highly anticipated fourth season, Centric reports.

Though her position in Shonda Rhimes’ hit show will be strictly behind the camera, King will get the chance to act in American Crime, written, produced and directed by 12 Years a Slave Oscar winner John Ridley.

Her Scandal gig will begin in February.
