American film and television actress Regina King is currently working on three different projects. The Los Angeles-native has joined John Ridley‘s hour long ABC drama American Crime with a major season-long arc and will return to CBSThe Big Bang Theory to reprise her role.

King will also head back to ABC to direct the 16th episode of Scandal‘s fourth season.

American Crime is written, executive produced and directed by the 12 Years A Slave Academy Award winner (John Ridley). The film stars Timothy Hutton and Felicity Huffman, examines the personal lives of the players involved in a racially charged trail as their worlds are turned upside down.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “King will play the devoutly religious sister of Carter who comes to Modesto in order to help her brother navigate a judicial system that she believes is stacked against him.”

“She’ll film the seven-episode role with an option for two additional installments until mid-November, filming one episode of Big Bang Theory while shooting the ABC drama, after which she will head to Scandal to direct in February. (She will not have an onscreen role in the Kerry Washington-starrer.)”

“On Big Bang, King portrays the university’s director of human resources, where she has an awkward relationship with Kunal Nayyar‘s Raj and the rest of the gang.”
