A New Favorite Father-Daughter Duo
According to the logline for the show, UnPrisoned follows the story of “a marriage and family therapist whose life is turned right-side-up when her father comes home from prison and moves in with her and her teenage son.”
It’s going to be a half-hour dramedy that centers around complicated relationships between “a father and an adult daughter,” as well as “grandfather and grandson.”
Kerry Washington plays Paige Alexander in the show, while 70-year-old Delroy Lindo plays her father, Edwin Alexander.

“I knew that whoever played this role was gonna have to be somebody who was incredibly talented and strong,” Washington said about the character played by Delroy Lindo.
She said that they wanted someone whom viewers “could believe could be a career criminal” but also someone with whom people couldn’t help but fall in love. “And I just felt like Delroy had all those qualities.”
“He’s so lovable, he’s so strong, he’s so vulnerable, he’s so smart – he’s everything,” Washington continued to gush about her co-star.

Scandal’s Olivia Pope also shared that it was an exciting moment when Lindo finally agreed to join the cast. “I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, we have a show.’ If Delroy is gonna do this, then we might actually have a show.”
Delroy Lindo, renowned for his work in films like Malcolm X and Gone in 60 Seconds, was incredibly grateful for the opportunity to showcase his talents again.
He shared his perspective with People: “It’s profoundly affirming, and I say that not from an ego point of view, from a human point of view, from a creative point of view, that my work as an actor could resonate out into the community, could resonate out into the world and touch and impact somebody like Kerry, who would then say, ‘Come do this with me.’ [It] means the world.”
