MAJAH: SuperProducer Shonda Rhimes taps Supertalented Viola Davis for next TV Series!


 Pure Dopeness. This actress brings the fire with her acting skills..I cannot wait to see this show and major Kudos to Shonda Rhimes for hiring women of weight in the acting arena, who happen to be of color. ABC is going to be mighty colorful with "Scandal" and now this awesome actress..

At this point, it seems like Shonda Rhimes can do no wrong. The creator of ABC’s “Scandal” recenly announced that she’s teaming up with another black Hollywood heavyweight, Viola Davis, to star in a Philadelphia-based pilot called “How to Get Away With Murder.”

With the success of racially diverse “Scandal,” Rhimes gained a new platform to talk about Hollywood’s lack of color and her mission to change it. “I think it’s sad, and weird, and strange that it’s still a thing,” she told the New York Times last year aout the lack of diversity in the industry. “It’s 2013. Somebody else needs to get their act together. And, oh, by the way, it works. Ratings-wise, it works.”
Davis, meanwhile, earned an Academy Award nomination for her role in “The Help.”
