Denzel Washington Will Make His TV Directing Debut with an Episode of 'Grey's Anatomy'

Denzel Washington has, interestingly, signed up to direct an episode of ABC’s Shonda Rhimes medical drama series, "Grey’s Anatomy" for Season 12.

Washington will direct this season’s 9th episode from a script penned by Stacy McKee, which will shoot later this month.

This will be Washington’s very first time directing for TV. He has of course directed two feature films – "Antwone Fisher" and "The Great Debaters."

Up next? Maybe he’ll direct an episode of "Empire." You never know…

Next spring, Washington will direct himself and Viola Davis in a film adaptation of August Wilson’s "Fences" for HBO.
