WATCH: Amazon Teases Barry Jenkins' Underground Railroad Series

  • This new teaser for The Underground Railroad gives us our first look at the Barry Jenkins adaptation of Colson Whitehead's 2017 novel of the same name. The story depicts an alternate history where the legendary escape route for slaves was a literal railroad system under the soil of the antebellum South.

    The Underground Railroad premieres May 14 on Amazon.

    Andy Hunsaker has a head full of sitcom gags and nerd-genre lore, and can be followed @AndyHunsaker if you're into that sort of thing.
