Days of our Lives fans who have missed the talents of Greg Vaughan as Eric Brady will only have to wait till September to see his next role!

News from Deadline had that the highly-anticipated original dramatic series, Queen Sugar from executive producers Oprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay will bow on OWN this fall.

OWN has set a two-night premiere on Tuesday and Wednesday September 6th and 7th at 10PMEST.  It then will air regularly at 10 PM Wednesdays for the remainder of its 13-episode first season.

Inspired by Natalie Baszile’s book, the contemporary drama chronicles the lives and loves of the estranged Bordelon siblings in Saint Josephine, LA: Nova (Rutina Wesley), a world-wise journalist and activist; Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner), the savvy wife and manager of an NBA star; and Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe), a formerly incarcerated young father in search of redemption. 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.

The series regular cast also includes Greg Vaughan and Dondré Whitfield (Ex-All My Children) among others.  Watch the teaser for Queen Sugar after the jump. Then let us know if you are looking forward to seeing Greg and checking out the drama!

    James…I was thinking the exact same thing!!!!! Where is Greg??? Weird.

    Have a good one, Brother.


    Kennedy replied

    He’s the guy in bed with Rutina Wesley. It’s in the promo, with a lot of quick-cuts, but he’s there.

    YES, I’ve seen him tweeting about it, and I love OWN but haven’t tried any of their dramas yet. I would love to see a better trailer, though, with dialogue/scenes to get a sense of the flavor better.
