The Fixer: Premieres Monday, 17 April at 8:30PM
Olivia Pope’s (Kerry Washington) job is to make massive problems, disappear. Pope has dedicated her life to protecting and defending the public images of the nation's elite and keeping those secrets under wraps. Revered and feared at the same time, Olivia, a former media consultant to the President of the United States, left the White House to open her own crisis management firm. She is hoping to start a new chapter in her life – both professionally and personally – but she can't seem to completely cut ties with her past. Slowly it becomes apparent that her dysfunctional staff, who specialize in fixing other people's lives, can't quite fix their own.
The Fixer also stars Columbus Short, Guillermo Diaz, Darby Stanchfield and Katie Lowes.
Annalise Keating (Academy Award winner Viola Davis) is everything you hope your Criminal Law professor will be: brilliant, passionate, creative, charismatic - and fearless, whether in the courtroom or classroom. Keating is a defense attorney who represents the most hardened, violent criminals - people who've committed everything from fraud to arson to murder - and she'll do almost anything to win their freedom. But as strong as she is, she has challenges of her own. The successful attorney is forced to confront secrets about her life she never saw coming, through her relationship with Philadelphia detective, Nate (Billy Brown).
Catch How to Get Away With Murder on Wednesdays at 9:30PM.
