Britt Robertson Joins New ABC Series 'For The People'

Britt Robertson has landed a brand new show — with Shonda Rhimes!

The former Girlboss actress will star in the new ABC series, For The People, Deadline reports.

The series will be set in the Southern District of New York (SDNY) Federal Court.

It will follow brand-new lawyers working for both the defense and the prosecution as they handle the most high-profile and high-stakes cases in the country – all as their personal lives intersect.

Britt will take on the role of Sandra, a sensible, fiercely intelligent and independent new public defender “who was driven to the law because of an injustice perpetrated on her family when she was a child.”

      where did you get the information that this part was meant for a black woman?

        the series had an original cast for the pilot, the part Brit has was originally Britne Oldford, a black woman. I don’t know why they didn’t cast an actress with more ability if they were thinking of replacing the PoC role, at least them people would be distracted by the actresses likability and not the fact that she’s a white woman replacing a black woman. No one gets excited to hear Britt RObertson’s name.

    Seeing as how nearly every show she has been the lead in has either been cancelled or not lasted past S1, I’m won’t hold my breath on this being a hit.

      none of the shows cancelations had anything to do with her … she is quite talented.

        It might not be all down to her but if you play the lead in a show then you have to carry some of the blame when it fails and the fact she has had three cancellations all on the first season doesn’t exactly spell success. She can act, I’m not denying that but but there is nothing special about her that makes you go oh and all her roles could easily be played by another actress. When she was in LU, we got the whole ‘she’s the next best thing’, the next so and so but nothing ever came of it and the same thing happened with TSC and it’s how many years later now and more recognize her as someone’s girlfriend than as such and such from a show/movie.
