Don risks everything to land an A-List performer in order to take Soul Train nationwide. While Tessa struggles to live up to Don's expectations, she discovers a new act that could be the next big thing.
Inspired by the personal trials and professional successes of a young, ambitious and troubled impresario, Don Cornelius, this is 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 responsible for the way African-American culture was perceived by the world.
