The Oprah Winfrey Network has been hitting it out of the park with their original drama series lineup. Following a successful run during this years Essence Festival, OWN recently released an extended trailer for their latest addition, “Queen Sugar”.
The series from Award-Winning Filmmaker Ava DuVernay, Executive Producer Oprah Winfrey and Warner Horizon Television will debut as a two-night event on Tuesday, September 6 and Wednesday, September 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, and will regularly air Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT for the remainder of its 13-episode first season.
“Queen Sugar” will be interesting to watch, and hard not to draw parallels from my own life as the family dynamics play out on screen. I often say having my grandparents within walking distance is a blessing, but the fear of what happens after they are gone is a reality I’m struggling to face daily.
Emotions, perceptions, and unresolved pain has a way of showing up in the strangest of times.
I’m looking forward to getting to know more about the Bordelon siblings: Nova, Charlotte, and Ralph Angel – and their extended family.
Set in Saint Josephine, Louisiana: Charley, the savvy wife and manager of an NBA star; Nova, a world-wise journalist and activist; and Ralph Angel, 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.
Check out the extended trailer below, and get ready to tune in September 6-7 at 10PM ET/PT
