It’s all in the family for new Shondaland series For the People and Station 19.
Olivia Sandoval has been added to the For the People cast as a recurring guest-star, EW has learned exclusively.
Set in the Southern District of New York (SDNY) Federal Court, a.k.a. “The Mother Court,” the series follows brand new lawyers working on opposite sides — 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. Sandoval (Fargo, Modern Family) will play Celia Chavez, an assistant United States attorney.
So, what’s the Station 19 connection? Sandoval is the only daughter of actor Miguel Sandoval, who is a series regular on the upcoming Grey’s Anatomy spin-off. The father-daughter duo previously appeared on screen together on Medium.
For the People, which stars Britt Robertson, debuts Tuesday, March 13 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
