Since the season finale of Showtime’s vampire series, “True Blood,” we haven’t seen much of Rutina Wesley in a strong lead/supporting role. It’s refreshing to see that she recently landed a new lead role on Television as the lead in Queen Sugar, OWNS newest drama series.
The series premieres on September 6, 2016. Based on the same-titled book, Queen Sugar takes viewers on a journey with two sisters (Nova and Charley Bordelon), both of whom inherits their deceased fathres800-acre sugarcane farm in Lousiana. Wesley plays the sister, Nova. From the premise alone, this television series looks as if it is full of greed, lust and sibling rivalry.
Just enough dramatic tension to keep its viewers interested in the outcome. This plotline has great potential. It’s right up Oprah Winfrey’s alley.
