The new family drama “Queen Sugar” follows three estranged siblings in a rural Louisiana town as they struggle to make sense of their lives while preserving a family legacy: a failing sugar-cane farm.

Nova (Rutina Wesley, “True Blood”) is a fiery journalist and activist. Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner, “Unforgettable”) is the wife and no-nonsense manager of an NBA star. Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe, “Awkward”) is a devoted young father with a criminal past.

The series, which premieres on OWN network Tuesday and Wednesday at 10 p.m. EDT, is based on the novel by Natalie Baszile, and is executive produced by Oprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay (the acclaimed filmmaker of the Oscar-nominated “Selma” and a new documentary, “The 13th”), who is also the series’ creator as well as one of its writers and directors.
