Shonda Rhimes’ New Series ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ Casts Viola Davis

19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Arrivals

Academy Award winning actress Viola Davis has signed on as the lead in Shonda Rhimes’ newest TV drama, “How to Get Away With Murder.”

The series is set at a law school where Davis will play a criminal defense professor who, along with her law students, becomes involved in a murder conspiracy that could rock their entire university and change the course of their lives.

As we all know, Mrs. Rhimes is very secretive about all her projects. There is nothing else to report on this show in development and probably won’t be until the day before it airs. But when your resume includes the likes of “Grey Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “Private Practice” we’re sure that “How to Get Away With Murder” will be good TV.
