"Underground" (TV show) is a pulse-pounding thriller drama series on WGN America in which bravery, ingenuity and power take center stage as slaves band together in the fight of their lives — for their families, their future ... and their freedom.

For a slave living in the pre-Civil War South, the only road to freedom was a dangerous journey where failure often meant death. This series follows the slaves who set foot on the fabled Underground Railroad, the secret network of men and women who risked their lives aiding them, and the mercenaries tasked with hunting them down at any cost.

The internationally renowned cast includes Jurnee Smollett-Bell ("Friday Night Lights," "True Blood," "The Great Debaters"), Aldis Hodge ("Straight Outta Compton," "Leverage," "Turn"), Emmy-nominated actor Christopher Meloni ("Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For"), Alano Miller ("Jane The Virgin"), Jessica de Gouw ("Arrow," "Dracula"), Adina Porter ("True Blood," "The 100," "The Newsroom"), Amirah Vann ("Girls," "And So It Goes"), Marc Blucas ("Blue Bloods"), Mykelti Williamson ("Justified," "24"), Reed Diamond ("Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.") and Johnny Ray Gill ("Rectify").

"Underground" is produced by Sony Pictures Television and Tribune Studios. The series is created and written by Misha Green ("Sons of Anarchy," "Heroes") and Joe Pokaski ("Heroes," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation"), who also serve as executive producers with Academy Award-winning writer Akiva Goldsman ("A Beautiful Mind," "I Am Legend") of Weed Road Pictures, along with Tory Tunnell ("King Arthur," "Holy Rollers") and Joby Harold ("King Arthur," "Edge of Tomorrow") of Safehouse Pictures. Anthony Hemingway ("The Wire," "Treme") directs and serves as executive producer for the first four episodes.
