‘Scandal’-‘How to Get Away With Murder’ Crossover Confirmed
Kerry Washington and Viola Davis are teasing on social media their upcoming appearances on each other's ABC dramas.
Producer Shonda Rhimes confirmed the eagerly awaited, television event by tweeting a photo of a script page featuring the names of Washington's Scandal and Davis' How to Get Away With Murder characters — Olivia and Annalise.
"People. It's happening. @petenowalk, you ready for this? #TGITCrossover #HowtoGetAwaywithScandal," Rhimes captioned the image.
"Hey Ms @violadavis check it out. This spot look familiar?! Where are you?" Washington wrote, alongside a picture of her dressed as Olivia and sitting on a bench outside of a courtroom that appears in Murder.
"Hey @KerryWashington, guess where I am?!" Davis posted with a photo of her leaning on the Oval Office desk as it appears in Scandal. "LOVE YOU," Washington responded.
Scandal co-star Tony Goldwyn re-tweeted a link to a Deadline.com story about the crossover, asking: "And guess who got to direct this one! (hint: he used to be POTUS) #Scandal #HTGAWM."
It is unclear when the episodes will air.
