- Main article: Season 1
Annalise Keating is everything you hope your Criminal Law professor will be - brilliant, passionate, creative and charismatic. She's also everything you don't expect - sexy, glamorous, unpredictable, and dangerous. As fearless in the courtroom as she is in the classroom, Annalise 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. On the surface, Annalise seems like she has it all - a successful career and loving husband, Sam - but her relationship with a local Philadelphia detective, Nate, will force her to confront secrets about her life she never saw coming.
Each year, Annalise selects a group of the smartest, most promising students to come work at her law firm. The students vying for this coveted position include Wes Gibbins, a wide-eyed, likable boy-next-door recently accepted off the waitlist; Michaela Pratt, a confident, ambitious overachiever born knowing how to "lean in"; Connor Walsh, a sly, sophisticated heartbreaker used to getting any prize he lays his eyes on; Laurel Castillo, a quiet, sensitive idealist who's easy to underestimate; and Asher Millstone, an entitled know-it-all born into a world of Ivy League educations and country club memberships. The students all work under two of Annalise's dedicated associates: Frank Delfino, a local Philly boy done good; and Bonnie Winterbottom, a sweet, observant team-player with a hidden edge.
