It appears Shonda Rhimes has an appetite for ‘Scandal’. The creator of the hit ABC show has re-teamed up with the network for her latest series ‘How To Get Away With Murder’.
A favourite at the ABC Upfronts, the show is led by Oscar nominee Viola Davis who plays criminal defence attorney and professor Annalise DeWitt.
The show, a legal thriller, follows DeWitt and her ambitious law school students who become entangled in a murder mystery that could have major ramifications on their entire university — as well as change the course of their lives.
Scheduled to arrive in the Fall, a titillating sneak peek has been released to whet appetites. Check it out below…
More than anything, though, it’s warming to see major networks keen to champion shows with ethnic leads. It’s been too long overdue.
