HBO Announces CONFIRMATION Premiere Date


HBO is going back in time to examine the 1991 Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination hearings in an original film starring Kerry Washington, Wendell Pierce, Greg Kinnear, Jeffrey Wright, Eric Stonestreet and Jennifer Hudson.

Washington stars as Anita Hill, a lawyer and one of Thomas’ aides. She accused him of sexual harassment and was later called on to testify during the nomination hearings — a situation which changed the way the U.S. thought about sexual harassment and victims’ rights.

CONFIRMATION will premiere on April 16 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on HBO and also stars Dylan Baker, Erika Christensen, Kimberly Elise, Malcolm Gets, Grace Gummer, Bill Irwin, Zoe Lister-Jones, Peter McRobbie, Treat Williams and Alison Wright.
