Shondaland has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president of the United States.
Showrunner Shonda Rhimes and her triumvirate of stars -- Kerry Washington (Scandal), Ellen Pompeo (Grey's Anatomy), and Viola Davis (How to Get Away With Murder) -- appeared in an ad Thursday evening on ABC in support of the Democratic candidate.
Directed by Scandal's Tony Goldwyn, the ad shows each actress comparing her character -- a "brilliant, complex, overqualified, get-it-done woman who obsessively fights for justice" -- to the former secretary of State, who as a female front-runner is making history in her run for the White House.
"Our characters are on television, but the real world has Hillary Clinton," they continued. "A bona-fide, rolls-up-her-sleeves, fights-for-what's-right, in-it-for-you, won't-back-down champion for all of us."
