ABC released the official trailer for For the People, the new legal drama from producer Shonda Rhimes. This could very well be the Shondaland series that fills the Scandal void that will undoubtedly take place once season 7 comes to an end!
The series is set in New York’s high-profile Southern District federal court and follows young defense and prosecuting attorneys as they try to figure out their professional and personal lives. It stars Britne Oldford as Sandra Black, a rookie public defender who was motivated to become an attorney by an injustice her family suffered when she was a child.
The series is created by Scandal‘s Paul William Davies and executive-produced by Rhimes and Betsy Beers. It joins ABC’s veteran series Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder, and the upcoming Still Star-Crossed.
