On Monday, Oprah Winfrey and her OWN Network hosted an exclusive screening in Hollywood for the highly anticipated new original drama series Queen Sugar.

HipHollywood hit the red carpet and spoke with the cast, and Lady O herself about executive producing the show along with award-winning filmmaker Ava DuVernay, and making a statement by having a team of all-women directors for the show.

“We wanted to make a statement, that bringing not just diversity, but inclusion of people that in many points  may not have had an opportunity to direct a series like this, that was the statement we wanted to make,” explained Winfrey.

The series not only has an all-female directing team, who DuVernay hand-picked herself, but also a majority all-female production team and staff of writers.

“I think everyone has a different view in telling stories, but you will see a connected lyricism and sensuality to this series that I think happened because all of the women involved,” added Oprah.

Queen Sugar, which stars Rutina Wesley, Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Kofi Siriboe, Omar J. Dorsey, Dondré T. Whitfield and Glynn Turman, chronicles the lives and loves of three estranged siblings.

The series will debut as a two-night event on Tuesday, September 6 *commercial free and Wednesday, September 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
