The Shonda Rhimes drama How to Get Away with Murder stars Academy Award nominee and Tony Award-winning actress Viola Davis as the cunning ‘Professor Annalise Keating.’ Premiering Fall 2014, the series follows the private and personal lives of Professor Keating and her students as they become unwillingly intertwined in a murder plot.
The series’ first season received nominations at the Golden Globes, People’s Choice Awards and the NAACP Image Awards, including three wins. The role earned Davis a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Actress.
In September 2014, HTGAWM broke The Blacklist’s record for the most DVR playback views, which was set earlier that year. The series has been renewed for a second season and will return Fall 2015.
