‘American Son’ Play Starring Kerry Washington Will Be Adapted by Netflix

On Monday, Kerry Washington announced on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” that her Broadway play, “American Son,” will be adapted by Netflix. She is set to reprise her role as Kendra, the concerned mother of a son who may be in great danger.

The rest of the cast, including Ms. Washington’s co-star, Steven Pasquale, who plays Kendra’s estranged husband, Scott, will also return for the adaptation.

In the interview with Mr. Fallon, Ms. Washington said: “We’re not just filming the play. We’re adapting it to kind of be this movie-play hybrid event.”

Kenny Leon, who directed the Broadway production, will also direct the Netflix adaptation and act as a producer.

The play, written by Christopher Demos-Brown, is set in a South Florida police station, where the couple played by Ms. Washington and Mr. Pasquale try to get to the bottom of what happened to their missing son.
