"Confirmation" follows the landmark court case of Anita Hill, the attorney who sued Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas (Pierce) for sexual harassment in 1991. The story received national media attention, and addressed the way America considered race relations and victims' rights. Golden Globe nominee Washington will play Hill and will also serve as executive producer on the film. The star shared a photo from the set on her Instagram with the caption "Dear @HBO, Thank you for the profound opportunity of getting to inhabit Anita Hill and help tell this story!"
