‘Queen Sugar’ season two celebrates all-female director team
Queen Sugar came back to OWN with a bang on June 12th. To prepare ourselves, we’re looking back at the amazing team of female talent who directed the last season.
At a press event Tuesday night in Los Angeles, Queen Sugar creator and executive producer Ava DuVernay spoke about her decision to work with an all-female director team on the critically acclaimed show’s second season.
“I always say if Game of Thrones can have three seasons of all male directors, why can’t we have three seasons of all women directors? If they can do it, why can’t we do it? We’re going to center women, because we can and we want to and we’re at a network owned by a woman, so it makes it easier.”
DuVernay discussed the show with stars Dawn-Lyen Gardner and Kofi Siriboe at LA’s Four Seasons Hotel. Gender equality in Hollywood is again a hot topic.
