Ok, I’m fully down for WGN’s upcoming show Underground, an action, adventure drama about a group of slaves trying to escape. The show has a mighty impressive group of people behind it. It is executive produced by music great John Legend and has a team that’s been involved in shows like True Blood, The Wire, Treme, Daredevil and Sons of Anarchy.  WGN is putting on the full court press ahead of it’s March 9th debut, starting with a huge debut at The Sundance Film Festival on Saturday, Jan 23rd (I’m almost tempted to fly out for this.)
