A Discussion About 'The Underground Railroad'

Sharon Waxman & Daniel Goldblatt • June 15, 2021

This week on “TheWrap-Up,” hosts Sharon Waxman and Daniel Goldblatt discussed the renewed controversy surrounding Martin Bashir’s 1995 interview with Princess Diana, Chris Cuomo advising his brother during Andrew Cuomo’s sexual harassment scandal and a preview of TheWrap’s upcoming series, Conversations on Cancel Culture.

Then, we’re joined by Jeremy Helligar and NPR’s TV critic Eric Deggans to discuss Barry Jenkins’ new Amazon series, “The Underground Railroad.” Is the series too violent? And is it suitable for children?

Finally, AT&T’s decision to spinoff Warner Media and combine with Discovery was a major move with major ramifications for the industry. TheWrap’s Tim Baysinger and Sean Burch join the podcast to help us make sense of it all.
