DeMane Davis is a TV Director and a Producing Director. Ava DuVernay graciously asked her to direct two episodes of the second season of her groundbreaking TV series Queen Sugar which airs on OWN which has changed the entire landscape (and the numbers) by only hiring female directors and specifically hiring first-time female directors. Ava asked DeMane to be producing director of season three. In addition to producing the entire season she directed three episodes, including the premiere. Queen Sugar was recently renewed for a fifth season! Since then DeMane has directed on For The People; The Red Line for CBS, How To Get Away With Murder, Station 19 and YOU for Netflix. She was also Producing Director on Self Made: Inspired by Madam CJ Walker a four part series which premieres on Netflix on March 20th. She directed the last two episodes. Most recently she's been back to Shondaland to direct an episode of their final season of How To Get Away With Murder. Her episode airs in April of 2020!  She is also a Commercial Director and is with Sweet Rickey, a collaborative, female-owned production company versed in creating original content. DeMane is a Sundance Fellow Class of 97 and two of the features she wrote premiered in competition at The Sundance Film Festival. LIFT, Kerry Washington’s first solo feature, is available on Amazon. In addition directing, she is also a Freelance Copywriter/Creative Director and voiceover talent. Self Made details the life of America’s first self-made millionaire — how she fought for social change and simultaneously overcame post-slavery racial and gender biases, personal betrayals, and business rivalries to build a ground-breaking brand that revolutionized black haircare.

'The Wiz' with 'How to Get Away with Murder' Director DeMane Davis

This week we are graced by the presence of the wonderful writer/director, DeMane Davis (Lift, 'Queen Sugar', 'How to Get Away with Murder'). She's on the program this week to discuss The Wiz. She and April begin the conversation by fawning over the performance of the one and only Diana Ross as Dorothy. They also cover the technical prowess of director Sidney Lumet, and why he considers this film somewhat of a failure. The conversation then turns towards DeMane's work as a TV director. They go in depth on what a day on set actually looks like. DeMane tells a story about a time when the producers of her feature Lift brought on another editor. But she also stresses that the most important thing is getting your work out in to the world. And lastly, DeMane emphasizes the lessons she learned from The Wiz about believing in yourself, and that when you are comfortable and confident in the work that you're doing, that's when you become really dangerous.

You can see DeMane's episode of How to Get Away with Murder on February 14.

If you haven't seen it yet, go watch The Wiz.

With April Wolfe and DeMane Davis.
