Viola Davis as Martha Schulman
Between making acclaimed performances in movies and starring in ABC's How To Get Away With Murder, Viola Davis found time to make Custody, a new Lifetime Original Movie. The film debuts on Saturday, March 4 at 8 p.m. ET and is a courtroom drama centered on a custody battle.
Custody tells the story of Sara Diaz (Catalina Sandino Moreno), a single mother. She nearly loses custody of her children after she is accused of hurting her son. Ally Fisher (Panettiere) is a recent law school graduate who represents her before Judge Martha Schulman (Davis), a Family Court veteran. The film was written and directed by Pulitzer Prize winner James Lapine (Into The Woods).
Davis is the headliner of Custody, especially since she just won an Oscar for her supporting role in Denzel Washington's Fences. She is the first African-American woman to win a Primetime Emmy, Oscar and Tony. She's only a Grammy away from joining the legendary EGOT club. Davis' next big movie is an untitled Harriet Tubman project.
