How to make sure viewers won't change the channel? Have an entire night of programming from Shonda Rhimes!
The scheduling smartypants over at ABC made a super-slick move when they decided to dedicate their entire Thursday night line-up real estate to Shondaland's group of hot doctors, fixers and lawyers, pairing Grey's Anatomy and Scandal with the showrunner's newest drama, How to Get Away With Murder, starring Oscar nominee Viola Davis. Can you say TGIT: Thank God It's Thursday?! ABC is hoping so!
We've got your first look at the network's new "TGIT" campaign that's set to make its debut during tonight's episode of The Bachelorette and finds Rhimes and Davis teasing How to Get Away With Murder, one of the fall's most buzzed-about new shows...
Like Grey's Anatomy with doctors and Scandal with political fixers, How to Get Away With Murder gives us "a very sexy, fast-paced look at the law," Rhimes teases in the juicy promo above.
And viewers can expect to see yet another amazing female heroine (or anti-heroine?) at the center of the new series.
"She is a defense attorney who is also a top law professor," Davis says of her character Annalise Keating, who may just give Scandal's Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) a run for her monologue and wardrobe money! "I want to be her," one of Annalise's students says, speaking on behalf of all of us.
How to Get Away With Murder will air Thursdays at 10 p.m. beginning this fall on ABC.
