'How to Get Away with Murder'

If you can't get what you want at the movies, go to television. Viola Davis, Tony-winning Broadway star and Oscar-nominated supporting Hollywood player, now has her own ABC TV series thanks to Shonda Rhimes, who made Kerry Washington a star with "Scandal." This one will follow that one on Thursday nights. 

Check the trailer below for ABC fall series "How to Get Away with Murder," which looks like "Damages" meets "House," basically. Davis plays the tough-as-nails law professor and high-powered attorney, but is she on the right side of the law? How willing is she to do what it takes to win a case, and what legal ethics is she teaching her students? Rhimes can build on all that writing she did for hit TV series "Private Practice" (2007–2013).

Check the trailer below, which also features Alfred Enoch ("Harry Potter") and Matt McGorry ("Orange Is the New Black").

    I thought Viola Davis was a star already...

    Intriguing. I wish her (them) well. It DOES seem kinda like "Damages" meets "House" meets "The Paper Chase". The background music was cool also.

    This looks very exciting & jaw dropping to say the least. I am yet amazed every time I get a glimpse inside the mind of Ms Shonda Rhimes
