The Hillary Clinton’s campaign unveiled a new commercial spot featuring Shonda Rhimes and our favorite TGIT leading ladies  — Ellen Pompeo (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Kerry Washington (“Scandal”) and Viola Davis (“How to Get Away With Murder”).

The spot is called “Real Life” and began airing this evening in states that have primary elections on March 15th.

The ad was directed by Tony Goldwyn, who plays President Fitzgerald Grant on “Scandal.”

“Every day I wake up and play a brilliant, complex, overqualified, get-it-done woman, who obsessively fights for justice, who cares, who gives a voice to the voiceless, who gets knocked down and always gets back up,” the actresses say. “I make television filled with the kinds of characters I imagine we all can be. Strong but flawed, human but extraordinary. Our characters are on television but the real world… The real world has Hillary Clinton.”

They add, “A bonafide, rolls up her sleeves, fights for what’s right, in it for you, won’t back down, champion for all of us. That’s why I’m with Hillary. Join us.”
