WGN America’s new series, Underground, will be screened today at the White House, part of the White House Office of Public Engagement’s Black History Month celebrations.
The series, executive produced by John Legend and Akiva Goldsman, along with series creators Misha Green and Joe Pokaski and director Anthony Hemingway, follows a group of enslaved people trying to make their way to freedom along the underground railroad.
The EPs, along with cast members that include Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Aldis Hodge, Christopher Meloni, Alano Miller, Jessica de Gouw and Amirah Vann, will be part of a pre-screening panel that starts today at 5:30 p.m. ET.
For those who are not there in person, the panel will be live streamed at WhiteHouse.gov/Live. The actual premiere date for the series is March 9.
