Underground Is Gone for Good


Last year Underground producer John Legend lobbied hard for another network to pick up his critically acclaimed slave drama after it was canceled by WGN [click here if you missed that].

Now we know the show is gone for good...

Hip Hollywood caught up with Underground creator Anthony Hemingway and asked if the show was successful in finding a new network.

This was his reply
“Unfortunately, no. I know, I’m sad. Sorry.”

Of course it's done, that last scene had him butchering slave masters in a Nat Turner like manner. White folks don't want black people getting any ideas, because they know the power of the media and how it can program you into doing things.

Pretty much @8:59 I knew this show would be dropped after that Harriet Tubman episode when she was talking about black folks rising up against these devil's soon. 2 weeks later the show was cut Lol

The show was Cut because of low ratings. Bottom line. White people aint worried about what Black people see on TV. More than half of yall grew up watching Cosby Show and A Different World yet majority of yall arent doctors, lawyers, HOMEOWNERS or MARRIED to a Black spouse. Cut the shit please.

10:03 AM

You’re a moron and it’s apparently clear you know nothing about this subject. Underground was not cut because of low ratings, that’s the story they’ve perpetuated and you’re here to support that lie. There’s data that would dispute everything you’ve said. In addition to you not knowing WTF you’re talking about, it is a known fact that predictive programming is alive and well in media. That’s one of the reasons why they hire particular celebrities and pay them the bigs bucks for endorsements to influence certain populations. You mentioned The Cosby Show, and as a matter of fact, college admission for Black Americans skyrocketed during the prime-time runs of The Cosby Show & A Different World. That was a positive reinforcement to watching that show but there are also negative reinforcements to viewing others that aren’t like that. It’s not called PROGRAMMING for nothing! Television’s primary motivate is to change how you think and if enough black people watch a show where black folks go on a rampage killing white folks, that scares the people behind the scenes.
Know what the fuck you’re talking about next time you decide to type some dumb shit. You’re either ignorant or wanted to swarm this blog to diminish the truth. In any event, you’re information is inaccurate.

Skyrocketed?? Thats a reach. College admission rose but it did not skyrocket. And anybody can get into COMMUNITY college which accounts for most of those admissions. I am talking about DOCTORS and LAWYERS not some bitch with a liberal arts degree. Nice try.

The show was cut for financial reasons. Period pieces are notoriously expensive, and this show was no different. They would have needed to cut the budget literally in half, but I guess the producers refused to do so. Think about Tyler Perry's Haves and Have Nots and If Loving You is Wrong. The pace of both shows is annoyingly slow, but TP does that to control costs by minimizing sets and wardrobe changes.
