The Underground (2016)

Underground on WGN is a brand new TV show about a group of slaves that run away from their slave life to travel 600 miles to freedom.  The series will premiere on March 9 from 10 pm to 11 pm on WGN.  Since the show is on so late, Underground may explore mature themes.  Be sure to watch the show with your parent to make sure that they approve.

Check out the first look below.  The show discusses historical elements that we will be talking about in class such as Abolitionists, the Underground Railroad, and the life of a slave.  Today we are starting a unit on Abolitionists so the show might be interesting to watch.

Watch the show and comment what you thought about it.
