Rhode Island actress Viola Davis is talking about her latest project, a television pilot for ABC.

Davis plays ambitious defense attorney Annalise Keating, who also teaches law students at an ivy league university.

"She teaches them how to defend a criminal case in a practical manner by allowing them to help her solve a murder investigation," Davis said, adding there's more than one mystery to be solved after a murder takes place on campus.

The show, "How to Get Away with Murder," takes place in Philadelphia.
