Check Out the Action Packed Trailer for Showtime's Series 'The Good Lord Bird'


Based on the 2013 James McBride novel, The Good Lord Bird follows a young enslaved boy as he joins John Brown in Brown's abolitionist mission during Bleeding Kansas.

Newcomer Joshua Caleb Johnson plays Onion (who is a fictional character) and can be heard narrating the trailer. Just like in the award winning novel, the series will be told from the point of view of Onion (Joshua Caleb Johnson).




You will also spot Daveed Diggs (of Hamilton fame) as abolitionist and orator Frederick Douglass.






The seven part miniseries will premier August 9th on Showtime.
