Producer Shonda Rhimes is back with a new show that tackles the legal profession.
Academy Award nominee Viola Davis stars as a famous criminal defense attorney teaching young law students in a class she likes to call "How to Get Away with Murder." (I like this already.) The show focuses on several students in her class who get involved in a real-life case with her. Since it's a show produced by Rhimes, I'm pretty sure it will focus solely on philosophical issues surrounding the law and not a just feature a bunch of hot, sexy people getting romantically involved with each other while discovering deep, mysterious secrets about other people on the show. Because that would just be terrible.
The show is scheduled to air Thursdays at 10 p.m. EST on ABC, after Grey's Anatomy and Scandal.
