What A Drama Is Supposed To Be. ..
Queen Sugar OWN’s new drama premiering this fall stars Rutina Wesley from True Blood in her most dramatic role to date. The drama series, which is executive produced by Oprah Winfrey and Ava Duvernay is completely directed by female directors this debut season. A rarity in hollywood, television and film, but leave it to Oprah and Ava to make sure of it! Im here for it! Rutina stars as Nova a powerful journalist who speaks towards Black activism and social issues, a popular activist who’s dating a white man in the world of confusion. Rutina’s break out role on True Blood made her a staple, and her role on Queen Sugar will catapult her career, mark my words.
“The contemporary drama “Queen Sugar” chronicles the lives and loves of the estranged Bordelon siblings in Saint Josephine, Louisiana: Nova (Rutina Wesley “True Blood”), a world-wide journalist and activist; Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner “Unforgettable”), the savvy wife and manager of an NBA star; and Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe “Awkward”), a formerly incarcerated young father in search of redemption. After a family tragedy, the Bordelons must navigate the triumphs and struggles of their complicated lives in order to run an ailing sugarcane farm in the Deep South. Led by acclaimed film director DuVernay, who directed the first two episodes, all episodes in the series’ debut season are directed by women. “Queen Sugar” is produced for OWN by Warner Horizon Television.
