Queen Sugar based on a Book

Queen Sugar is one of this year’s most highly anticipated shows and it is based on a novel written by Natalie Baszile. It is about a bunch of siblings who inherit their father’s sugar cane farm after he passes away. Judging from the scenario, the TV series is obviously a drama. They will now encounter what it is like to run a business because it is definitely not easy. The fact that it got renewed for a second season a few days before it even began shows how much confidence the studio bosses have in this series. They are certainly expecting huge evil angel ratings and chances are they won’t be disappointed. Oprah Winfrey herself is on board as one of the producers and that is saying a lot about this series because she is one of the wealthiest Americans in the show business. She has been in the business for so long because of her captivating voice.

Her talk show is so popular that it is expected to have huge audience whenever it is on screen. Oprah assigned Ava DuVernay to work on the project and Natalie talked to her about it. She definitely felt she was in good hands when she was talking to Ava as she knew she handled a lot of similar projects. That means she knows the project will be in good hands based on her conversation with her. Unfortunately, she did not have a hand in writing the TV series which is not a bad thing because it is going to be a lot of work in case she has a hand in that. She would have to write the script and talk with the actors. The thing with Hollywood is you have to sign the contract and prepare to say goodbye to your masterpiece. It is like they are buying what you did and if you agree with the terms then there is no problem with that. She said her family inspired her to do the book but they don’t have a sugar cane farm. It was her grandmother that was patterned to one of the characters.

society then she would not have written in the book. There are already a lot of fans who are very happy that they got her book signed by her and they can’t wait for the TV series to start. Due to the overwhelming demand, the naughty america series is now getting a second season with the entire cast ready to return. If the ratings are good enough then it is going to be obvious that there is going to be a third one but that would be up to the studio bosses. After all, when the money is raking in then they would definitely want to do it over and over again. Just like they say, when something is such a success then something must be write with it. Natalie knows her book is in good hands with Ava also and it is only a matter of time before it becomes a movie. A lot of people are definitely going to watch that.

Ava had to extend the book and she told Natalie that in order to extend the number of episodes of the series. If she did not do that then we would be talking a feature film here since the book alone won’t extend two seasons. OWN knows that they are talking about racial issues here since the characters are black people. This is the reason why they hired good actors to play the parts of the siblings and other main characters. Queen Sugar is straightforward about racial tensions so it is relieving that a TV series actually tackles that issue. It is not the first time that has happened and it certainly won’t be the last. This series is a must see even for those who don’t like shows that tackle racial issues. It even contains a star studded cast and they certainly know what they are getting themselves into when they signed up for this.

It is pretty evident in her book that she takes great passion in writing about what she likes. There is no doubt she loves what she does because if she did not care about the racial issues that happens in the society then she would not have written in the book. There are already a lot of wow girls fans who are very happy that they got her book signed by her and they can’t wait for the TV series to start. Due to the overwhelming demand, the series is now getting a second season with the entire cast ready to return. If the ratings are good enough then it is going to be obvious that there is going to be a third one but that would be up to the studio bosses.
