Award-Winning Filmmaker
Ava DuVernay and Executive
Producer Oprah Winfrey Bring
Best-Selling Book to Life



BURBANK, CA - Following the highest-rated two-episode debut in OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network history, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings you Queen Sugar: The Complete First Season. From award-winning filmmaker Ava DuVernay and executive producer Oprah Winfrey, the series tells the story of the Bordelon family, as three estranged siblings return home after a family tragedy forces them back together. Queen Sugar: The Complete First Season will be available May 30, 2017 on DVD for $29.98 SRP.

Contemporary drama Queen Sugar chronicles the lives and loves of the estranged Bordelon siblings in the fictional town of Saint Josephine, Louisiana. After a family tragedy, the Bordelons must navigate the triumphs and struggles of their complicated lives in order to run an ailing sugarcane farm in the Deep South.

Starring Rutina Wesley (True Blood), Dawn-Lyen Gardner (Unforgettable), Kofi Siriboe (Awkward), Omar J. Dorsey (Rizzoli & Isles), Dondré T. Whitfield (Middle of Nowhere), Timon Kyle Durrett (Single Ladies), Nicholas L. Ashe (Custody), Greg Vaughan (Lucifer, The Closer), Ethan Hutchison (The Path), Marycarmen Lopez (Book of Ruth) and Tina Lifford (South Central).

The drama begins as Charley (Gardner), a savvy woman living an upscale Los Angeles lifestyle, returns to her family home and reunites with her siblings, Nova (Wesley), a world-wise journalist and activist and Ralph Angel (Siriboe), a formerly incarcerated young father in search of redemption. Their newly inherited farm forces the siblings to rely on one another as they rebuild both the land and their relationships. Queen Sugar: The Complete First Season brings all the renowned first season's powerful family moments set to an original music score created by 10 time Grammy nominee, Meshell Ndegeocello.

The brain-child of Winfrey and DuVernay was so highly anticipated, Queen Sugar was renewed for a second season even before the series premiered. Based on Natalie Baszile's best-selling book, Queen Sugar lived up to its predicted success with 2.4 million viewers tuning in to the September 2016 two-night premiere, a network record.

"After such a spectacular debut, we are excited to bring every moment Queen Sugar: The Complete First Season to DVD in anticipation for the second season!" said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV Marketing. "Featuring an interview with showrunner Ava DuVernay, we're looking forward to giving fans an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at this show's remarkable production."
