The Underground Railroad

Oscar-winning filmmaker Barry Jenkins wrote, produced, and directed this adaptation of Colson Whitehead’s novel of the same name, which follows Cora (Thuso Mbedu), an enslaved Black woman attempting to ride the Underground Railroad to freedom. The story is set in an alternate timeline where the “Underground Railroad” is actually a fully functioning subterranean railroad that Cora must travel on to escape the Antebellum South. Chase W. Dillon, Aaron Pierre, Joel Edgerton, and William Jackson Harper play supporting roles in the 10-episode series.
