Ava DuVernay Says Her New Show Will Have ‘An All-Women Directorial Team’
Ava DuVernay is continuing her mission of making the entertainment world more inclusive by choosing an all-star line up to help direct her upcoming show, “Queen Sugar.”
The 13-episode series, set to air on Oprah’s OWN network, will have an “an all-women directorial team,” according to DuVernay.
“We’re hiring… a lot of women that we know from the black independent film space, that I won’t announce yet,” DuVernay told Reel Black at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival on Tuesday.
“It’s an exciting time to invite women into this show, and to try to tell the story of this family, of really strong women who do an amazing thing.”
