It was announced that Oprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay, the dynamic duo who collaborated on the Oscar-nominated biopic, Selma, are producing a scripted drama series on Winfrey’s OWN network.
And—for the first time ever—Winfrey will have a recurring role on the series, Queen Sugar, the story of a woman living in Los Angeles who moves with her daughter to her father’s 800-acre sugar cane farm in Louisiana after his death. DuVernay will write and direct, and both DuVernay and Winfrey will executive produce.
