Viola Davis continues the trend of big screen movie  stars taking on the small screen as she’s slated to star in a new ABC TV pilot. The two-time Oscar nominee  will have a leading role in How to Get Away with Murder, created by  Scandal mastermind Shonda Rhimes.

The plot involves a cryptic law professor and a group of students who become involved in a murder.

Peter Norwalk (Executive Producer of Grey’s Anatomy) will add his magic touch to the script and executive produce alongside Rhimes.
