Jasmin Savoy Brown is heading to ABC. Deadline reports the Leftovers star has joined the network’s upcoming TV show For the People.
From writer Paul William Davies, the drama “is set in the Southern District of New York Federal Court, aka “The Mother Court,” and follows 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.” The cast also includes Britt Robertson.
Brown will play “Allison, Sandra’s (Robertson) roommate, best friend from law school and now colleague in the Federal’s Public Defender’s Office.” ABC has not yet announced a premiere date for For the People.
