WGN America’s series Underground follows a group of men and women who use their power to attempt the greatest escape in history.
Jurnee Smollett Bell talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about the 10-episode, hour-long original series, the film’s celebration of women both on and off screen and more.
“We have 10 episodes and it’s about the bravest escape story in our history. It was a time in our history that we don’t hear a lot about. For me it’s such an honor to explore that side of our history.”
Underground airs on WGN America on Wednesday night at 10p EST. Click the link above to hear the entire interview.
