In January, Blame Ebro reported that singer John Legend would serve as one of the executive producers on a new WGN series, called “The Underground,” which would explore racism and cruelty, and the heroic men and women who fought against it.

Creators of hit series Heroes, Misha Green and Joe Pokaski collaborated with director Anthony Hemingway, who is known for his work in “Trueblood” and “The Wire” to produce the first and only television series centered on the success stories of the Underground Railroad.

Stars of the series include Aldis Hodge from “Straight Outta Compton” and Jurnee Smollett-Bell from “The Great Debaters.” In regards to the show, Smollett-Bell said, “The spirit of revolution that [Noah and Rosalee] carry is no different from the youth that are out there right now marching, saying we matter.”


Don’t forget to catch “The Underground!” The series is set to air on March 9 at 10 p.m. EST.
