Created by Misha Green and Joe Pokaski, UNDERGROUND is a drama that explores the early days of the Underground Railroad, which began before the American Civil War.

Although UNDERGROUND deals primarily with fictional characters, including escapees Aldis Hodge’s Noah, Jurnee Smollett-Bell’s Rosalee and Alano Miller’s Cato, and Jessica De Gouw’s white convert to the cause Elizabeth, in Season 2, UNDERGROUND includes some notable historical figures.

Jessica De Gouw and Alano Miller have both been giving interviews for hours already when they sit down with Assignment X to talk about Season 2 of WGN America’s Wednesday-night drama UNDERGROUND. However, both actors talk about the pre-Civil War series, concerning the Underground Railroad, with an energy and enthusiasm that belies their long day. De Gouw plays Elizabeth Hawkes, who is initially drawn into the abolitionist movement by her husband John (Marc Blucas), but who over the first season developed perhaps even more passion for the cause than her spouse has. Miller plays Cato, who bears visible scars inflicted […]Read On »

The season finale of the show, entitled “Curtains,” was a complete mess. Whereas the previous last four episodes have actually improved the show […]Read On »

On July 29th a big party was held by CBS/The CW/Showtime for the Television Critics Annual Summer Press Tour at The Event, which is actually the upper parking lot where the department store Robinson’s/May in Beverly Hills used to be. Taking pictures before heading inside it was quite a turnout of stars from the three networks of their new shows and returning shows of the three networks CBS, The CW and Showtime. I probably missed a few as I went in as soon as the cast from the CW new show THE ORIGINALS, a spin-off from THE VAMPIRE DAIRIES walked […]Read On »

Obviously it’s a very different model.” With summer programming being […]Read On »
