The Wrap reports that ABC has ordered a pilot of a show called How To Get Away With Murder from Shonda Rhimes's production company, Shondaland. The pilot, written by
Peter Noah (who wrote for The West Wing and penned the episode of Scandal with the awesome sexism speech) Peter Nowalk* is "a law-school legal thriller about students and their mysterious criminal defense professor who get involved in a murder plot." So… Legal Eagles meets Murder She Wrote meets Professor of the Dark Arts? I'm in.
*Nowalk, not Noah, we stand corrected! Nowalk has written for Scandal and Grey's Anatomy.
