Executive produced by Jesse Collins Entertainment, American Soul is the story about the struggle to make the dream of Soul Train come true. Set in the early ‘70s, filled with music, dance, fashion, and glamour, this is the untold story of the launch of the first nationally syndicated Black music show and what happened when the music stopped. Battles with record labels for top talent and off-camera drama as young dancers vie for the spotlight, stand in the way of a 30-something Don Cornelius who is sacrificing all that he loves to follow his dream. The journeys of these characters collide in a racially charged Los Angeles with the odds stacked against them. All they have is each other and the magic of Soul Train.
