The talk will be live-streamed at WhiteHouse.gov/Live, beginning at 5:30 p.m. ET.
"'Underground' follows a group of courageous men and women who use their ingenuity, power and perseverance to attempt the greatest escape in history and break free, despite the dire consequences that awaited them on the other side," a synopsis said.
"The story follows a courageous blacksmith who covertly organizes a small group of his fellow slaves and pieces together a daring plan of escape across hundreds of miles to freedom. The odds of success are razor-thin for those who make it off the plantation, while the risks, dangers and obstacles multiply each step of the way."
Set in 19th-century America, the series is scheduled to premiere March 9.
