DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, May 2015) They say the first year of law school is the hardest. After taking Professor Annalise Keating's (Viola Davis) class at Middleton University in "How to Get Away with Murder," the Keating 5 were pushed to their limits as their values, convictions, dreams and even truths about themselves were revealed to be as dark as the law and justice system they're trying to learn. Following the aftermath of the murder mystery cover up that Wes Gibbins, Connor Walsh, Michaela Pratt and Laurel Castillo were involved in, they each fear the worst when Rebecca Sutter escapes from under their watch. Unbeknownst to them, she is found dead by Annalise and her trusted associate Frank Delfino, creating an entirely new murder and undoubtedly, a new web of lies and suspects. "How to Get Away with Murder" stars Oscar(R) nominee Viola Davis as Professor Annalise Keating, Billy Brown as Detective Nate Lahey, Alfred Enoch as Wes Gibbins, Jack Falahee as Connor Walsh, Aja Naomi King as Michaela Pratt, Matt McGorry as Asher Millstone, Karla Souza as Laurel Castillo, Charlie Weber as Frank Delfino and Liza Weil as Bonnie Winterbottom. The series was created and executive-produced by Peter Nowalk ("Scandal," "Grey's Anatomy"). Shonda Rhimes ("Scandal," "Grey's Anatomy"), Betsy Beers ("Scandal," "Grey's Anatomy") and Bill D'Elia ("The Crazy Ones," "Boston Legal") also serve as executive producers. "How to Get Away with Murder" is produced by ABC Studios.
