Actors Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Aldis Hodge chatted with Ed Lover and Monie Love about WGN’s  “Underground,” which tells stories surrounding the Underground Railroad. But Jurnee notes that “nothing about our show is traditional.” She and Aldis speak to some of the initial hesitancy they felt about working on the show, and the initial backlash they received about another piece dedicated to telling the story of slaves.

Aldis and Jurnee explained what made them want to work on the show despite their reservations. Plus, they talk about how they are dealing with the current political and social climate in America, especially while working on such a politically charged piece.
