Aaron Pierre is to lead Barry Jenkin's The Underground Railroad. The upcoming Amazon series is based on the Colson Whitehead novel of the same name and Aaron will star in the role of Caesar. The project was first set up more than two years ago on the heels of Jenkins’ Oscar wins for the film Moonlight, with Amazon officially ordering it to series last June.
Jenkins will direct all 11 one-hour episodes of the show in what will be his first attempt at directing a TV series in its entirety.
We can't wait! Huge congrats, Aaron!Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
