- The show is executive produced by director Ava DuVernay and is about a family of three estranged siblings coming together to take over their deceased father's sugar cane plantation
- The first two seasons of the show were directed exclusively by women directors
- DuVernay has also inked a first-look TV deal with Harpo Films meaning that they will get the first shot at buying/producing any TV works that she creates
Yay! I'm not always 100% on Queen Sugar, but I admire what DuVernay and the show are doing for woc.
