"I wanted to be the show." That was one of the biggest factors that drew two-time Academy Award nominee Viola Davis to ABC's How to Get Away With Murder from executive producer Shonda Rhimes. And as you can see on this newly released poster, Davis got her wish.
Standing strong — and solo — against a bold red background accented with an ink-like splash, the 48-year-old actress commands your attention, and demands your respect. A request made infinitely easier when she eloquently explains, as she did at the 2014 Television Critics Association summer press tour, why this role was too good to pass up.
It's refreshing to see ABC selling this show based solely on the strength and appeal of Viola Davis. But we'd expect nothing less from Shonda Rhimes.
