BET offered a first look at their highly anticipated series, “American Soul,” during the “Soul Train Awards” on Sunday night.
The 10-episode series, starring Sinqua Walls, is inspired by the “personal trials and professional successes of the young, ambitious and troubled impresario Don Cornelius.”
The drama series is described as an unflinching look at the entrepreneur, his “Soul Train” dancers, crew and musicians in an unforgiving Hollywood in the 1970’s – how they work, play, rise and fall against the backdrop of “Soul Train” — “the hippest trip in America” and one of the most predominant television shows for African American culture.
Kelly Price and Kelly Rowland are also set to star in the series set to premiere February 2019.
