Ava DuVernay's All-Women Directing Team
With Queen Sugar, show creator and award-winning filmmaker Ava DuVernay wanted to accomplish many things. One of her top goals, however, was to highlight female directors who were not getting as much work as they should in the male-dominated TV industry. That ethos continues in Season 2 with the assembly of another all-female directing team, including Cheryl Dunye, Aurora Guerrero, Maryam Keshavarz, Amanda Marsalis, DeMane Davis and Kat Candler.
Here, co-executive producer Paul Garnes and production supervisor Cheryl Miller discuss this season's directing team and open up about what it really means to have an "inclusive crew."
Tune in for the two-night season premiere June 20 and 21.
