Watch! The Extended Trailer For “Queen Sugar” Is Here
Last month, OWN released the first trailer for their new series, “Queen Sugar.” Not only was it beautifully shot. Thanks Ava! The story, based on Natalie Baszile’s novel seems intriguing. As a recap, the book follows Charley Bordelon, who lives in Los Angeles but relocates to Louisiana after her father’s death.
The series though, will place Nova in the position of the protagonist.
The series, according to OWN’s YouTube page, chronicles the lives of the estranged sisters Nova and Charley. After the death of their father, the family must run an ailing sugarcane farm in Saint Josephine, Louisiana.
DuVernay served as the director for the first two episodes and all subsequent ones will be led by other women. DuVernay, Melissa Carter and Oprah Winfrey serve as executive producers.
The series will air in the Fall.
