Fox Expands Episode Order for Sophomore Drama ‘Star’

Five Additional Episodes Ordered

Fox has ordered five additional episodes of music drama “Star,” increasing the series order to 18 episodes. Now airing out of relocated “Empire,” the season two season-premiere of “Star” on Sept. 27 scored a 2.4 rating/9 share, based on the Live + Same Day data, which was a series high and the strongest seven-day total multi-platform audience since the same date, delivering a seven-day total multi-platform audience of 7.5 million viewers. The drama also was up by 20 percent in the demo from its season one finale.

The logline this Wednesday: While preparing for an upcoming TV appearance with recording artist Noah Brooks (Luke James), the girls (Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O’Grady) learn that they will be singing backup rather than co-headlining the performance.Anxious for the girls’ next big move, Carlotta (Queen Latifah) turns to the new A&R executive, Maurice (guest star Lance Gross), for help on a new deal. Meanwhile, Jahil (Benjamin Bratt) tries his hand at producing music, Cotton (Amiyah Scott) struggles with starting her new job and Star (Demorest) comes face-to-face with an unexpected person from her past.
