Samuel L. Jackson-led ‘Enslaved’ Docuseries Gets a Premiere Date
A release date for Samuel L. Jackson’s next project is inching closer: “Enslaved,” a new docuseries that is partially about Jackson identifying his ancestral tribe, is slated to premiere on Epix on September 14.

Variety reported that the six-part docuseries will feature three storylines, one of which will center on Jackson using a DNA test to identify his ancestral tribe and trace his journey from the U.S. to Gabon for his induction into the Benga tribe. The other two storylines will center on the quest for a sunken slave ship and a historical investigation led by investigative journalists Simcha Jacobovici and Afua Hirsch. The series will premiere in Canada on CBC on October 18.

While Jackson isn’t involved in two of the docuseries’ storylines, Hirsch told Variety that including his story in the series helped broaden its appeal and would help viewers emphasize with important historical elements from the other storylines.
