FOX has released the first promo for its highly-anticipated new series, STAR, from the mind of Empire co-creator Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy, and starring Queen Latifah. The series will have a special preview on FOX in December and is anticipated to premiere in January.
STAR will feature a soundtrack of original music and stunning music performances, and follows three talented, young singers, desperate for a new start and with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cut-throat music business on their road to success. The series stars Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award, Grammy Award and Golden Globe Award winner Queen Latifah (Bessie, Bringing Down The House) as Carlotta and Emmy Award nominee Benjamin Bratt (24: Live Another Day, Law & Order) as Jahil, and newcomers Jude Demorest as Star, Ryan Destiny as Alexandra, Brittany O’Grady as Simone and Amiyah Scott as Cotton. The series also will feature guest stars Grammy Award winner Lenny Kravitz (Lee Daniels’ The Butler, The Hunger Games), supermodel/actress Naomi Campbell (Empire) and Grammy Award-nominated musician and actor Tyrese Gibson (2 Fast 2 Furious).
