Where does your mind go when you hear a TV series title like Underground?

Daily Billboard immediately thinks of shows like Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, or movies like Room, where women have been held captive by mad psychopaths, especially as this ad creative has a tagline like 'break free' and a man with a menacing look on his face.
