Viola Davis To Star In TV Pilot

Viola Davis, one of my favorite performers, whose loss two years ago to Meryl Streep in the Best Actress contest was one of my biggest Oscar disappointments ever, is trying her hand at TV. Davis is set to star in the ABC drama pilot “How to Get Away with Murder,” from Shonda Rhimes’ ABC Studios-based banner. “Murder” revolves around a mysterious law professor and a group of students who become entangled in a murder plot. I pray that when this gig is over Davis will return to the stage.
