With the debut of the upcoming WGN America premiere of "Underground" on deck, celebs came out to the Hollywood premiere and afterparty to support.  Get the pics of Angela Bassett, Courtney B. Vance, John Legend and the series' stars Jurnee Smollet, Aldis Hodge and more inside... 

The much anticipated "Underground" tells a story, with a twist, of slaves escaping via the underground railroad set against modern music, with the series and the music executive produced by John Legend & his Get Lifted label.   So celebs made their way to the Theatre At The Ace Hotel in L.A. to help the cast and crew celebrate.

Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner (and nine-time Grammy-winning singer-songwriter if we're going to run all the credits) John Legend snapped a pic with the leading actors as he and his Get Lifted label are executive producing "Underground." Get Lifted is also overseeing the score, soundtrack and all music aspects of the series (which will include Hip Hop).  Nice!
