Queen Sugar has some new company. Deadline reports Sharon Lawrence, Alimi Ballard, and Margot Bingham have joined season two of the OWN TV show.
The drama chronicles the lives and loves of the estranged Bordelon siblings, who must come together to try to save the family sugarcane farm after a tragedy. The cast includes Bianca Lawson, Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Dondré Whitfield, Rutina Wesley, Glynn Turman, Greg Vaughan, and Henry G. Sanders.
Lawrence will play Lorna, the mother of Charley Bordelon. Sophisticated, charismatic, and complicated, Lorna is a successful, self-motivated businesswoman who raised her daughter to never settle for second best. Ballard will portray Dr. Robert Dubois, an epidemiologist who works at The Center for American Progress. Sincere, charming and intellectual, Dr. Dubois makes a lasting impression on Nova. Bingham is Tamar Judith, a cool and confident pop singer who crosses paths with Davis.”
