  • Fox and Lee Daniels Bring Another Musical Sensation in Star
 

With higher stakes, musical struggle and girl power comes the all new musical drama from Fox and Lee Daniels Star

We all love Fox’s Empire. Somewhat a new breath of fresh air in the drama lineup on American TV with larger than life characters, family drama that spans generation and the music that is changing the hip hop and RndB for three years now.

The show seems to be going bigger and stronger considering it was started on a very low budget at one point by Lee Daniels and everyone from the producers to the directors to the actors worked hard to make the show work.

Taraji P. Henson’s Cookie Lyon has become a worldwide phenomenon representing feminism and female power. The show character’s all represent a problem persisting in the country and the black community.

Andre’s mental health issues, Jamal’s homosexuality and the rich and unadjusted young black people like Hakeem who don’t know the struggle of living on the streets, these are all some trademarks of the show we have grown to love. 

Lee Daniels has pointed out that Empire is a show that takes place after the family has made it. It is a story about what happens after the success. Drawing comparison, Fox and Daniels have collaborated once more to bring the audience another story in Fox’s Star.

A story inspired from Daniels first experience watching Broadway’s Dreamgirls, Star is based on the story of two orphaned sisters, Star played by Jude Demorest and Simone played by Brittany O'Grady, who escape their abusive foster-care homes and team up with Alexandra played by Ryan Destiny, the runaway daughter of a famous musician played by Lenny Kravitz. 

The aspiring trio form a girl group and move to Atlanta. They seek refuge with Star and Simone's godmother, Carlotta played by Queen Latifah, and land a seedy, washed-up manager played by Benjamin Bratt.

Daniels points out that Star is not a clone of Empire. It is based on the struggle that a star has to go through to where Empire is at right now. The show will feature original pop/R&B songs written for the show, under the supervision of songwriter Johntá Austin. Austin has also reportedly collaborated with Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige.

The show will premiere after the fall finale of Empire and continue for the winter season.
