Showing Roots | Southern Drama to Premiere on Lifetime (May 26th)

Share

In Showing Roots, a small Southern town in 1977 is turned upside down when the miniseries, Roots, hits the airwaves. Two women who work together at the local beauty parlor (Orange Is The New Black star Uzo Aduba and Taken 3 star Maggie Grace) forge an unlikely friendship and become inspired to integrate their town – much to the dismay of those around them.
