How to Get Away with Murder (ABC)
Reminds Us Of: 21
A whip-smart college professor takes a select group of (almost) equally whip-smart students under their wing to teach them the tricks of the trade with no regard to right and wrong. In 21, Kevin Spacey's MIT professor taught a select group of students to count cards and brought them to Vegas to do his bidding, literally, but at least on Murder, Viola Davis' Professor Annalise Keating isn't just in it for the money. She just wants to win every legal case that lands on her desk no matter the means. Like 21, the ABC drama is also told through the eyes of a bumbling, fresh-faced outsider just looking to make a splash. To avoid any further overlap, Murder should stray from any predictable romances between Keating's students and, probably, casinos of any kind.
