Because there’s so much current and future content to contend with, I almost forgot that this was a thing. However, I’m pretty excited that this series is getting the go-ahead from Amazon. Via Variety:

Barry Jenkins has committed to direct all eleven episodes of his upcoming Amazon adaptation of Colson Whitehead’s book “The Underground Railroad,” which has officially been ordered to series at the streaming giant.

The fact that Jenkins is directing all episodes is an even greater reason to tune in. I can’t wait.
