The gripping new series, "Underground," premieres Wednesday night on WGN America.
It's a show about the human spirit. It shows a group of courageous men and women fighting for their lives. 'Underground' is centered around a blacksmith, Noah, as he organizes a small group of fellow slaves and pieces together a daring plan of escape across hundreds of miles to freedom.
Our Gabe Spiegel spent time with the cast in Los Angeles; he has a sneak peek in the video above of what you can expect.
