|How to Get Away with Murder premieres tonight on ABC.|
Oscar nominee Viola Davis stars as Annalise Keating, a tough as nails Criminal Law Professor. When Wes Gibbins (Alfred Enoch) starts his first day at Middleton University, he has no clue what he’s walking into. In her class, "How to Get Away with Murder," Annalise challenges her students to solve some of the most difficult criminal cases that her law firm takes on, and in the end, she selects a group of the smartest, most promising students to come work for her. The competition is on and the students will stop at nothing to make sure they get to the head of her class. While Annalise seems to have it all together, we soon learn that her clients' secrets aren’t the only ones she’s keeping. Meanwhile, in flash-forwards, we learn that the price of impressing Annalise might just be too much for some, when a group of four students, Wes, Connor Walsh, Michaela Pratt and Laurel Castillo get involved in their own murder mystery cover up.
