The Kerry Washington produced drama looks set to be HUGE...

Hayley Kiyoko is one of the most exciting popstars in the world right now. Over the past few years she has released an array of amazing, unapologetically queer songs ('Girls Like Girls', 'Curious', 'What I Need') and been dubbed "lesbian Jesus" by the internet.

However, she has also established an incredible career for herself in acting. From Disney classics like Lemonade Mouth to critically acclaimed comedy-dramas like Insecure, she's done it all.

Now Hayley is starring in a brand new Kerry Washington produced Facebook Watch series called Five Points and it looks brilliant. Yes. Kerry Washington, as in Emmy Award winning, boundary breaking, Olivia Pope playing icon Kerry Washington, produced it.

You can watch the trailer for the upcoming drama right now.

Five Points

One story told five ways. Five Points, an all new series from Kerry Washington's Simpson Street and Indigenous Media, begins June 4th, only on Facebook Watch.

Five Points centres on the stories of five teenage students (Tosh, Lexi, CJ, Jonathan, Wallace) at a Chicago high school who are brought together by one "life-changing event".

Hayley plays Lexi who is dubbed as an "outsider" in the teaser. Little else is revealed about Lexi in the trailer but in one part we see her say "I'm so sick of worrying what other people think", in another she is being bullied by Tosh and in one of the final stills she is covered in blood.

The series looks set to be a gripping watch from start to finish. It apparently will explore the perspectives of each of its five protagonists over a ten episode arc and if it's anywhere near as good as Hayley's music, we're in for a treat.

Five Points follows the release of Hayley's debut album Expectations which received rave reviews when it came out in March. The LP debuted at Number 12 on the Billboard 200 and has already racked up millions of streams worldwide.

Five Points premieres June 4th on Facebook Watch. We cannot wait to see it.
