Pete Nowalk speaks with Variety about his hit series How to Get Away with Murder and includes about working with Viola.

Pete Nowalk had a whirlwind TV season last year as the creator of Shondaland€™s mega-hit €œHow To Get Away With Murder.€

Just as the second season of the twisty Viola Davis legal thriller is about to begin, Nowalk €” one of Variety€˜s 2015 Showrunners Impact Report honorees €” looks back at Season 1, offering up his favorite moments, including tears from Davis and dance moves from Matt McGorry (who plays law student Asher).

Here, showrunner Nowalk talks to Variety about his best memories from €œHow To Get Away With Murder€™s€ big breakout season:

Best note: €œWhen I originally pitched the show to ABC Studios, they encouraged me to go darker with Annalise (Viola Davis) to make her more of an anti-hero, which surprised me. With network TV, you€™re always afraid to get the likable note, but they gave me the exact opposite. I could be more unhinged with the darker side of Annalise, which is the most fun part of the show for me to write.€

Worst note: Nothing that scarred me. I€™m so spoiled because Shonda (Rhimes) and Betsy (Beers, pictured) guard me from the bad notes. I think they protect me!

Favorite writers€™ room moment: We have real lawyers come and talk to us €” defense attorneys and prosecutors €” and this one prosecutor told us how to reenact the best way to get away with murder. He made me stand up and he reenacted pushing me off of a cliff. Creepy because you don€™t really want to find out the best way to get away with murder and you definitely don€™t want it to be reenacted on you, but it actually gave us this idea to do a reenactment of a murder with Steven Weber in episode two of Season 1. So that was fun just because it was so much like the show, and it was so creepy.

Proudest moment during Season 1: I was happy we won the GLAAD award because there are so many good shows on right now that have so many great gay characters, which is so new, but I was proud because Connor (Jack Falahee) is a bad person sometimes. He does bad things. So I was just happy it showed that we didn€™t have to write a gay character to be perfect and be a role model. He actually does things opposite of a role model €” like murder, having a lot of anonymous sex and cheating on his boyfriend. That just felt very liberating and progressive to me and surprising. I never expected we€™d win those awards because they€™re bad people. But as a writer, it was very liberating.

Scene that made you laugh: Matt McGorry dancing is the thing that cracked me up the most. He€™s just like humping and the couch and he just improvised all that stuff and went to town. It was way better than I could have ever expected. It€™s necessary. People need that comic relief.

Scene that made you cry: That€™s the scene between Cicely Tyson and Viola Davis where Cicely Tyson is revealing that she actually burned down the house and killed the uncle that had sexually abused Annalise. Viola doesn€™t say a word in that, but so much of it played on her face, but the first time I saw that, I sobbed.

€œHow To Get Away With Murder€ Season 2 premieres Thursday, Sept. 24 at 10 p.m. on ABC.


People.com shares how excited she was when anyone congratulated her on her win!

Sunday was a big night for Viola Davis.

The 50-year-old made history at Sunday€™s 67th Emmy Awards by becoming the first African-American woman to win an Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a drama series. But amid the barrage of praises and well-wishes following her historic win, kudos from a certain newly-single actor seemed to stand out from the rest.

€œJon Hamm!€ Davis told PEOPLE in the Emmys press room about the Mad Men star congratulating her after her win. €œHe€™s pretty handsome.€

She said that her husband congratulated her too, before adding, €œI€™m excited when anyone congratulates me.€

€œYou guys have to realize, I€™ve been in this business 35 years, and 27 years professionally €¦ I€™m just excited to be part of the conversation. I€™ve seen the unemployment line a lot, man.€

Now, to celebrate, Davis said she has two things on her mind: calling her daughter and eating.

€œBread. Desert,€ she told reporters before adding: €œYou know, if you eat bread in Hollywood you€™re subversive.€

The actress won the Emmy for her portrayal of Annalise Keating in How to Get Away with Murder. She delivered an emotional acceptance speech, highlighting the struggles black actresses face. She thanked other actresses of color including Kerry Washington, Halle Berry, Gabrielle Union, Meagan Good and Taraji P. Henson, who was nominated for the same award.

But The Help actress had more to say about Henson off the stage:

€œTaraji P. Henson, and it€™s very, very, very rare to find this in the business. She is the most supportive actress you can possibly imagine, supportive in ways you can€™t even begin to understand, and is genuine.

€œI€™ve been in this business close to 30 years, and I would put her at the top of this list in terms of support,€ Davis continued. €œWe just whispered to each other, whoever gets it, it€™s great, it€™s wonderful and I love you.€


Viola Davis is not letting go of her Emmy €” which she won Sunday for her starring role in ABC€™s How to Get Away with Murder €” anytime soon: The Oscar-nominated actress (and her Emmy) appeared on Ellen following her win to talk about sleeping with the pointy award, making history, and her husband€™s initial reaction to her speech.

Davis kicked off her acceptance speech with a quote from Harriet Tubman, one she loved and thought was €œso progressive.€ €œAnd my husband said afterwards, €˜V, I didn€™t know where you were going with that! I really didn€™t!€™€ Davis said, laughing. €œWhen you were saying those white women with their arms stretched out over the line, I was like €˜What is she doing?€™ But he said, €˜When you said Harriet Tubman said it, I was like, €˜Oh my God, thank God.€™€

DeGeneres, for her part, initially thought Davis was €œdrunk maybe€ €” and Davis admitted to drinking prosecco before the show as she was getting ready. €œThis past time, I drank while I was getting ready, while my daughter was jumping on my lap,€ Davis said, referring to her 5-year-old daughter. €œI just guzzled the glass.€

Watch both parts of the interview below to hear more about Davis€™ daughter €” who told her mom she would still be her €œfavorite girl€ even if she lost €” and what it was like winning her first Emmy.

Here is a video clip of Viola€™s beautiful acceptance speech at the Emmy Awards.

In my mind, I see a line. And over that line, I see green fields and lovely flowers and beautiful white women with their arms stretched out to me over that line. But I can€™t seem to get there no how. I can€™t seem to get over that line. That was Harriet Tubman in the 1800s. And let me tell you something: The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity. You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there,€


At the end of this week the cast of ABC€™s series Grey€™s Anatomy, Scandal & How to Get Away With Murder celebrate their shows at an event celebrating the Thursday Night Lineup.


How to Get Away With Murder started off season two with twists galore: Annalise has been shot! Annalise has a lover played by X-Men€™s Famke Janssen! Annalise took her students to a rave! It was a big episode for Viola Davis and her lead character, but one her mom probably didn€™t see. That€™s because she was at a casino, gambling. And that€™s the way the Emmy winner likes it.

€œListen, like I said, I€™m not comfortable with any sex scene. I just don€™t want my mom seeing it, so what I€™m doing is every Thursday night I give her money to go to the casino,€ Davis said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday. €œShe goes to the casino every single night, but this Thursday especially, she will be going to the casino.€

To keep her from just holding the money for her Friday casino trip, Davis said she uses Western Union to ensure her mom is out of the house to get it.

In fact, somebody once stole Davis€™ mom€™s wheelchair while she was playing the slot machines. But she did watch Davis take home the Emmy. The How to Get Away With Murder star made history by being the first black woman to win the award in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category. Davis said she had the inspirational speech prepared with the option of two quotes, but she thought the one she used by Harriet Tubman would come off as militant.

€œI just thought that moment was bigger than me. It was bigger than an just actress winning in that category€”it was the first time an African-American woman had won in that category,€ Davis said. €œI lost the Miss Central Falls Recreation Contest and that literally dictates my entire life.€

Not anymore, Viola Davis!

How to Get Away With Murder airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on ABC.
