Barry Jenkins’ ‘Underground Railroad’ Gets a Powerhouse Official Trailer Ahead of May Debut  — Watch
Amazon Prime Video has unveiled a majestic and powerful full trailer for Barry Jenkins’ upcoming, 10-episode limited series “The Underground Railroad,” the Southern antebellum saga he’s adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Colson Whitehead. All episodes unveil on the streaming platform May 14, right in time to make the series eligible for the 2021 Primetime Emmy Awards.

The Underground Railroad” takes a bold approach to telling a story of slavery, as Whitehead’s novel was set in an alternate history where the 19th-century Underground Railroad was a literal railroad that American slaves used to flee the South and find freedom. The series chronicles Cora Randall’s (Thuso Mbedu) desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South.

After she escapes a Georgia Plantation, she finds the fabled Railroad is a real one full of engineers and conductors, whose secret network of tracks and tunnels runs beneath the soil of the South.
