A press release was sent out and Viola will be one of the individuals participating in a PBS special celebrating August Wilson.

PBS has revealed its full primetime schedule for the 2015 winter/spring season.

“Our diverse schedule includes everything from award-wining documentaries to fascinating science shows to ovation-worthy arts performances. More than ever before, I can say that this winter/spring season, there’s something exceptional on PBS every night of the week,” said Beth Hoppe, PBS’ Chief Programming Executive and General Manager of General Audience Programming. “What’s more, the expansion of Sunday night drama gives our audience more of what they are looking for – thrilling, gorgeous, quality storytelling. PBS offers the very best content on television and across digital platforms.”

Highlights, with respect to this blog’s stated interest, include:

– This spring, PBS will premiere “First Peoples” on Wednesday, April 29, at 10pm ET, a five-part series on how early humans evolved since the beginning of time.

– Also on the schedule is INDEPENDENT LENS, offering a new season of original documentaries from some of the best independent filmmakers working today, like Darius Clark Monroe’s “Evolution of a Criminal,” executive produced by Spike Lee and airing January 12 at 10pm ET,. In the film, which has been covered extensively on this blog, Monroe returns to the scene of the crime to explore what led him to rob a bank as a teenager in Texas. And in “A Path Appears,” airing in 3 parts beginning January 26 at 10pm ET, Alfre Woodard, Eva Longoria, Nicholas Kristof, Malin Ackerman, Mia Farrow, Jennifer Garner, Ashley Judd, and Blake Lively uncover gender oppression and human rights violations in the U.S. and around the world.

– PBS will air several programs in late April beginning Monday, April 27, related to the Vietnam War, including a look back at the many thought-provoking conversations Dick Cavett had about the war with a range of public figures, including Muhammad Ali, Billy Graham and Henry Kissinger.

– Tuesdays this winter also bring the Season Two premiere of “Genealogy Roadshow,” airing January 13 at 8pm ET, with a diverse new cast of participants who take emotional journeys to explore genealogical mysteries. Participants hail from St. Louis, New Orleans and Philadelphia and their surrounding regions.

– And finally, and maybe most interesting of the lineup, PBS’s AMERICAN MASTERS series brings 4 new shows, including “August Wilson: The Ground on Which I Stand,” airing on February 20 at 9pm ET, with film and theater luminaries Viola Davis, Phylicia Rashad, Laurence Fishburne and others sharing stories of the late African American playwright’s rich theatrical canon. And there’s also Ric Burns’ new documentary “American Ballet Theatre at 75,” airing on May 22 at 9pm, which delves into the history of one of the world’s preeminent ballet companies through intimate rehearsal footage, dazzling performances and interviews with past and present stars, including Misty Copeland.

To support the variety of shows debuting in the upcoming Winter/Spring season, PBS LearningMedia will add content to their collection of more than 87,000 resources. For more information on the latest related digital resources, visit pbslearningmedia.org.

People gives us a sneak peek of a scene from Thursday’s winter finale of How To Get Away With Murder. Annalise confronts Sam about what Bonnie told her.

Who killed Sam – and did he kill Lila?

That’s the question on every How to Get Away with Murder fan’s mind as the ABC legal thriller flashes forward and back.

Thursday’s episode is sure to be explosive, and PEOPLE has the exclusive sneak peek at a pivotal scene between an angry Annalise (Viola Davis) and her two-timing husband. She’s confronting him about the slaying of his student, but as viewers have learned, he’ll also meet an untimely demise.

We know Sam (Tom Verica) slept with Lila. We know she was pregnant at the time of her grisly murder, suggesting a crime of passion. And now Annalise knows all this, too, after sleazy Sam hit on her devoted associate Bonnie to keep her quiet. (Here’s some advice: When your wife is trying to forgive you for one infidelity-slash-possible-murder, don’t put the moves on her employee.)

In this scene, Annalise tries to kick Sam out of her house, finally treating him like the pathological liar he truly is. (Seriously, has he ever said anything that’s not a fib to cover his own butt?) As she briskly packs his suitcase, he begs her to believe him one last time.

“I lied, yes, but only because I was afraid you’d think I killed her,” he pleads.

“Didn’t you?” Annalise shoots back.

Watch the clip above to see how he responds, and tell us your theories in the comments below.

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