This is a look at the underground railroad like you’ve never seen before!
The new WGN America show, Underground, is a thriller that follows a group of plantation slaves who dare to attempt the greatest escape in American history. It stars Aldis Hodge, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Christopher Meloni and many more, including Jurnee’s brother and Empire star, Jussie Smollett.
The show, from creators and executive producers Misha Green (Sons Of Anarchy, Heroes) and Joe Pokaski (Daredevil, Heroes), and executive producer and Oscar winner John Legend, pairs its gritty content with an even grittier soundtrack. In the newly released trailer, set to the score of vocals from Miguel and A$AP Rocky, you see a glimpse of how intense this sure-fire hit will be. Take a look!
Underground premieres on WGN America in 2016. Also, be on the look out for our exclusive coverage from the Underground set next year as well.
