    Hah. The brilliant writer-producer and Showrunner Anthony Sparks is not “subbing in” for the highly inexperienced Kat Candler. The truth is Candler was fired for almost ruining Queen Sugar. In addition to DuVernay, Sparks has been a key creative force of Queen Sugar and has been with the show since the beginning. Sparks promotion to Queen Sugar Showrunner was seen as long overdue by many industry watchers. He’s a rare Black male tv drama Showrunner, is beloved and respected by many, and it’s sickening and racist how the press keeps protecting the white Candler’s totally foreseeable failure as a Showrunner. All of TV knows she tanked and should have never been given or accepted the job. That’s the Truth!
