A new show exploring black actors’ experiences in Hollywood is being pitched, and “Scandal” star Joe Morton is said to be in the pilot, Page Six reports.

“I would go in and . . . embarrass the producers and directors by proving there was no reason for a black actor not to play that particular role,” Morton tells acting students about starting out. “I went to an audition once . . . I must have been 35, and the role was for a 60-year-old black man and I said . . . ‘What do I and this character have in common?’ and [the director] said, ‘You’re both black,’ and I said ‘[bleep] you.’ ”

The show’s hosted by Tracey Moore and produced by Rachel Weintraub and Dr. David Kolin.
