Viola Davis stars in the law student drama by the creator of ‘Scandal.’ ABC also ordered dramas ‘American Crime,’ ‘Galavant,’ ‘Black-ish’ and sci-fi tinged ‘The Whispers,’ as well as sitcoms ‘The Manhattan Love Story’ and ‘Selfie.’

ABC is becoming the Shonda Rhimes network.

Rhimes, who created two of the network’s biggest hits with “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal,” has been greenlighted for a third drama, “How To Get Away With Murder.”

There was no word Friday on when it could appear on the air. Like the other major networks, ABC is announcing its fall schedule next week.

“How to Get Away With Murder” revolves around elite law school students who get caught up in a real-life murder case.

Rhimes is noted for a fast-moving style with wry humor and frequent forays into high melodrama with lots of action.
