Jussie Smollett and Jurnee Smollett-Bell Are Set To Star In New Drama Series

Jussie Smollet, better known as Jamal Lyon from Empire, will guest star in forthcoming WGN America drama series, Underground. His real life sister, Jurnee Smollet-Bell is a star on the one-hour drama.

If you thought Underground will be about slaves then you guessed right:

It will follow the story of slaves fighting for their lives, families, future, and freedom. Jussie will play a slaved named Josey with trust issues worst than Drake. His sister will play a shy, but courageous slave named Rosalee.

The series is supposed to premiere next year.
