Kerry Washington is a woman inviting her formerly incarcerated father back into her life after he gets released from jail in the new trailer for Hulu’s Onyx Collective series UnPrisoned. The eight-episode series, which also stars Delroy Lindo, will hit Hulu March 10.
The series hails from Tracy McMillan and Yvette Lee Bowser and gives viewers a new look at intergenerational relationships. According to the description, Washington plays Paige Alexander, “a messy but perfectionist relationship therapist and single mom whose life is turned right-side-up when her dad [Lindo] gets out of prison and moves in with her teenage son.” Washington executive produces with Bowser, McMillan and Joy Gorman Wettels.
“From the moment we read the script for UnPrisoned, we wanted this fresh, funny series for Onyx,” said Tara Duncan, the president of Onyx Collection and Freeform, in a statement. “Tracy tells the story of an endearing but complicated father-daughter relationship with the heart and humor of someone who has lived this all too common experience. We’re thrilled to continue our creative collaboration with Kerry Washington and the teams at Simpson Street and ABC Signature.”
Washington also said in a statement how the series positively affected her.
“From the moment Tracy McMillan brought this project to Simpson Street, we knew that it had the potential to be provocative, groundbreaking and life-affirming,” she said. “I love this show. I love these characters and the stories that they inspire. And I’m extremely excited to be working, once again, with both Onyx Collective and ABC Signature and honored to be collaborating with this talented group of creative partners.”
