Shonda Rhimes has a new show coming to ABC next month, the legal drama For The People. It follows a group of new lawyers as they work on cases in the Southern District of New York federal court, a venue known for handling some of the country’s biggest trials. While the lawyers battle it out in court — some work for the defense, some for the prosecution — we also see the trials and tribulations of their personal lives. (Of course, being a Shonda Rhimes show, you know those personal lives will all get intertwined in drama somehow!) But when we talked to the stars of the show — Wesam Keesh, Rege-Jean Page, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Britt Robertson — they told us they were really excited about showing how the justice system really works.

For The People premieres Tuesday, March 13 on ABC.
