WATCH: Viola Davis in First Trailer for 'How to Get Away with Murder' Series on ABC

According to Blackfilm.com, ABC has given the green light to another series from producer Shonda Rhimes, ‘How To Get Away With Murder.’  Written and executive produced by Peter Norwalk (Grey’s Anatomy) and produced via Shonda Rhimes’ Shondaland production company, with her partner Betsy Beers, ‘Murder’ is described as a sexy, suspense legal thriller that follows brilliant criminal defense attorney Annalise DeWitt, played by two-time Academy Award nominee Viola Davis, 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.  Dewitt is described as “brilliant, passionate, creative, charismatic and ruthless in the courtroom and the classroom.” Rounding out the cast are Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry, Alfred Enoch, Karla Souza, Jack Falahee and Charlie Weber.  This marks the second ABC drama with a Black female lead, following Kerry Washington in Shonda’s mega political hit “Scandal.” Her other series includes the long-running “Grey’s Anatomy.”
