We have some new sneak peeks of some upcoming entertainment on television. Check out the official trailer and pics for Lee Daniel’s FOX series “Empire” and the first look at Viola Davis in Shonda Rhime’s new drama “How To Get Away With Murder” inside…

After a successful box office hit with The Butler, Oscar-nominated director Lee Daniels has gathered up some A-list talent for his first television series, “Empire.”

The FOX scripted series is billed as a music-heavy family drama set in the world of hip hop starring Terrance Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Gabourey Sidibe, Jussie Smollett, Malik Yoba and Macy Gray. Super producer Timbaland will produce original music for the new show.

Terrance Howard plays the main character, Lucious Lyon. He's a charismatic, savvy music superstar who is about to take his company, Empire Entertainment, public.

After shooting down claims that she ripped off a writer's idea for a TV show, Shonda Rhimes is gearing up for the release of her third ABC drama, “How To Get Away With Murder.” You'll recall, Shonda just inked a new four year deal with ABC studios so we'll be seeing a lot of Shondaland in the coming years.

Oscar-nominated actress Viola Davis is starring as ruthless law professor named Annalise DeWitt in the ABC drama. Annalise and her students somehow get involved with a real-life murder, which will alter all of their lives drastically.

Check the first look below:


“How To Get Away With Murder” will premiere this fall on ABC at 10pm/EST.
