'Buckle Up' for ABC's New 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Scandal,' 'Murder' Promo (Video)

Ellen Pompeo, Kerry Washington and Viola Davis team with executive producer Shonda Rhimes to promote the network's new Shondaland Thursday lineup.

ABC is using the women of Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder to promote its "historic" night of Shonda Rhimes programming.

In a new promo for the "Shondaland Thursday" lineup, stars Ellen Pompeo, Kerry Washington and Viola Davis get together with Rhimes to tease — sans spoilers! — the new night of drama.

"It is very daring. If you like great drama, that's where you come," Rhimes says in the promo of her programming block. "It's going to be an edge-of-your-seat three-hour block of time on Thursday nights."

Washington, warning newcomer Davis and likely fans of what's to come, says, "Buckle up!"

Check out the promo, above. ABC's #TGIT — Thank God It's Thursday — lineup featuring Grey's at 8 p.m., Scandal at 9 p.m. and How to Get Away With Murder at 10 p.m. kicks off Sept. 25.
