It’s OWN’s most highly anticipated show this year … and, rightly so. The trailer for “Queen Sugar” just may leave you breathless.
“Queen Sugar”, directed by Selma’s Ava DuVernay and executive produced by Oprah Winfrey, is based on Natalie Baszile’s novel of the same name. But, if you looking for plot-spoilers in the new teaser-trailer then you’ll be sorely disappointed. Not much of the storyline is told in the snippet, but the visuals alone will leaving you wanting more.
According to Indiewire, “Queen Sugar” stars Rutina Wesley and Dawn-Lyen Gardner as two sisters: Wesley plays a journalist and activist in New Orleans, Gardner a mother from Los Angeles who moves to Louisiana to move into the 800-acre sugarcane farm she inherited from her father.
“Queen Sugar” premieres this fall on OWN.
