Sudz Sutherland directs two episodes on new Netflix series, Ginny and Georgia, premiering Feb 24

Think of it as a modern-day version of Gilmore Girls, following a mother-daughter duo—Ginny (Antonia Gentry) and Georgia (Brianne Howey)—as they navigate several of life’s obstacles. This includes Georgia stealing everyone’s attention at the school drop-off and then trying to buy drugs from one of Ginny’s new classmates.

“We wanted Ginny & Georgia to be a fun, feel-good ride about women, by women, for everyone; one that depicted a nuanced and complicated mother-daughter relationship and layered female friendships in a way that isn’t always seen in shows,” said producer Debra J. Fisher in a press release. “It’s a show with smart women who are funny and complicated and troubled and intense and have dimension and agency. It has drama, mystery, darkness, humor and living room dance parties.”

In addition to Gentry and Howey, the series also stars Diesel La Torraca (Austin), Jennifer Robertson (Ellen), Felix Mallard (Marcus), Sara Waisglass (Maxine), Scott Porter (Mayor Paul Randolph), Raymond Ablack (Joe) and Mason Temple (Hunter).

Ginny & Georgia was created by Sarah Lampert (Haze). Anya Adams (Black-ish), Catalina Aguilar Mastretta (The Hours with You), Renuka Jeyapalan (Big Girl), Sudz Sutherland (Love, Sex and Eating the Bones) and Aleysa Young (Baroness Von Sketch Show) each directed two of the ten episodes.
