We already know Jesse Williams is super outspoken about issues of race, oppression, police brutality, and the justice system. Now, he’s taking his ability to break it all down to the small screen.

In “America Divided,” the Grey’s Anatomy star will investigate just how so many Black children are getting sucked into the school-to-prison pipeline.

Produced by Shonda Rhimes, Common and Norman Lear, “America Divided” promises to take an unflinching look at the “untold stories on the greatest social crisis facing our country: inequality.”

In addition to Williams, “America Divided” will star Common, America Ferrera, Zach Galifianakis, Norman Lear, Amy Poehler, Peter Sarsgaard, and Rosario Dawson will also explore how America is still very unequal, despite its promises to treat all of its citizens the same.

“America Divided” premieres September 30 at 9 p.m. on EPIX.
