Ladies and gentlemen, welcome Shondaland’s newest recruits. With For the People‘s premiere tonight, the world of Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, and Grey’s Anatomy gets a little bigger in a lot of the best ways.
In fact, it gets a lot bigger thanks to the large ensemble cast of the legal drama, which follows a group of newly minted lawyers who are learning to practice in the oldest court in the country while also, as usual, juggling their personal lives and interpersonal relationships.
The show also centers around the strong friendship between Sandra Bell (Britt Robertson) and Allison Adams (Jasmin Savoy Brown), which is the first thing that drew both Robertson and Brown to the series.
“When I read the script, I loved the female friendship of Sandra and Allison,” Robertson tells E! News. “I think that was the big draw for both of us because it’s just not really portrayed a whole lot on network television, and it’s nice to see it in this setting, sort of the courtroom drama aspect.”
“I feel like often they try, but they miss the mark,” Brown says of female friendships on other shows. “Like either it starts out as these are best friends and they turn on each other or stab each other in the back—it’s just not quite real. Or it’s too perfect, right, we don’t see any conflicts in the relationship and then how they resolve it, and they get it right.”
