Ava DuVernay

OWN’s upcoming series Queen Sugar looks super intense and emotional, but what else can you expect from film visionary Ava DuVernay?

Oprah Winfrey teams up with Ava to deliver a new show that follows siblings as they navigate a family tragedy while running a sugar cane in the South, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The drama looks steamy, as the teaser quickly moves through shots from the show that range from sexy to all-out terrifying.

In the spirit of true girl power, a woman will direct each of the episodes.

In an age of #hollywoodsowhite, there’s nothing better than seeing our sheroes write and direct the next great television narratives.

Check out the trailer below:
