Ava DuVernay’s “Queen Sugar” Gets Third Season

26 July 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Queen Sugar

Ava DuVernay’s hit television series “Queen Sugar” has been renewed. The critically acclaimed series will return for a third season on Oprah Winfrey’s Own Network, The Hollywood Reporter writes. Winfrey, who co-created the family drama with DuVernay, has also secured a new first-look TV deal with the “Selma” helmer through her Harpo Films production label.

Queen Sugar” follows the Bordelon family in the aftermath of their patriarch’s sudden death, the future of their 800-acre Louisiana sugar cane farm uncertain. Three estranged adult siblings are reunited and drama ensues. Rutina Wesley (“True Blood”), Dawn-Lyen Gardner (“Heroes”), Kofi Siriboe (“Awkward), Tina Lifford (“Parenthood”), and Omar J. Dorsey (“Ray Donovan”) star.

The second season of “Queen Sugar” is currently airing. Thus far every episode of the series has been helmed by a woman.

DuVernay is showing no signs of slowing down. The prolific director is already collaborating with Harpo Films on her latest project for Netflix, a recently announced five-part miniseries about the Central Park Five. She previously paired up with the streaming giant for “13th,” an Oscar-nominated doc exploring the connection between slavery and mass incarceration in the U.S. DuVernay’s hotly anticipated adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic sci-fi novel, “A Wrinkle in Time” stars Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and Storm Reid (“12 Years a Slave.”) The pic hits theaters March 9, 2018.

“I’m so proud of Ava and her ability as a filmmaker to challenge the status quo and push for inclusiveness onscreen and behind the camera,” said Winfrey. “I love, love, love the work we have been able to create so far. I am looking forward to developing many more meaningful projects together.”

Ava DuVernay’s “Queen Sugar” Gets Third Season was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

The Most Terrifying Character in 13 Reasons Why Got His Start on Glee

7 April 2017 1:38 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Netflix Of all the characters on 13 Reasons Why, few are as quietly terrifying as popular jock Bryce Walker. The drama follows high school student Clay (Dylan Minnette) after he receives a box of tapes from classmate Hannah Baker, who killed herself a few weeks earlier. On the tapes are the 13 reasons why she decided to commit suicide, each corresponding to a different person at the school. Bryce is a huge part of why she did what she did, and if you couldn't help but feel you'd seen the actor before while watching, you're definitely not alone. Signing on to play a character as despicable as Bryce can't have been a decision made lightly, but Justin Prentice - who was bullied himself as a kid - has had plenty of experience under his belt thus far in his career. The 23-year-old actor from Tennessee has been in the business »
