Empire’s Jussie Smollett Confirmed For Period Drama ‘Underground’ | TV News

 

Jussie Smollett is teaming up with his sister Jurnee for WGN’s upcoming period drama Underground. Underground will focus on a group of slaves who escape from a Georgian plantation; on their journey they are assisted by a secret abolitionist couple who run a station on the Underground Railroad. Jussie will be playing a run-away slave who doesn’t trust anyone.

 

Joining the Smollett siblings is Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: SVU), Reed Diamond (Agents of Shield, Franklin & Bash), Jessica De Gouw (Arrow, Dracula) and Aldis Hodge (Leverage). This sounds right up my street, I do love a good period drama. I know a lot of people will moan abut this being another slave drama, but the Underground Railroad was a very important part of African-American history, so it will be interesting to see how it is portrayed.

I am a television obsessive. I live, breathe, sleep television. I love watching it. Talking to others about it, oh and writing about it. TV is literally is my life. My dream is to one day write for television or at least appear in a show. Oh and spoilers beware.
