Kerry Washington will bid Olivia Pope adieu after this season of Scandal, but fear not, she already has her next show, Five Points, in the pipeline.

According to Variety, Washington is partnering with Facebook to executive produce a ten-episode series set on the South Side of Chicago. The show will explore one poignant event in five high schoolers’ lives through their five individual and unique points of view.

Thus far, Hayley Kiyoko (CSI: Cyber) and actress/model Madison Pettis are set to star in the series. There’s no word yet on whether Washington will act in the show.

Five Points will air on Facebook’s new streaming platform, Watch, and is the social media platform’s first foray into original programming.
