A new upcoming series titled ‘Underground’ that centers around a group of slaves who attempt to escape their Georgia plantation will have music executive produced by Kanye West.
The show starts with the slaves attempting to find freedom and progresses to the group meeting up with an abolitionist couple, who also run a station on the Underground Railroad, and will assist them in their efforts to freedom.
Kanye is rumored to be handling the music on the show, much like super-producer Timbaland and his music run on the hit series, Empire.
Although additional details about Ye’s involvement are scarce, the series will supposedly star actress Jurnee Smollet-Bell (‘The Great Debaters’ and ‘Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor’), “Leverage” actor Aldis Hodge, and Christopher Meloni.
We’ll be looking out for this.
