Union graduate appears in new ABC primetime show 'For the People'

"For the People" airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Tulsa's Channel 8 (ABC)

TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) -- ABC's newest show premieres Tuesday night on Channel 8 and features a former Tulsan.

"For the People" follows the U.S. District Court in New York and six talented, young lawyers as they tackle high-stakes federal cases. One the stars is Wesam Keesh, who attended Union High School and the University of Tulsa.

Keesh's former theater teacher says he's put a lot of work in over the last few years.

"He outworked everyone that was here, and just kept going," said Troy Powell.

Keesh sent a message to his fellow Tulsans ahead of the premiere.

You can watch "For the People" Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Tulsa's Channel 8.
