Fox Announces Start Date for New Drama ‘Star’

Pilot Episode Will Air Out of 'Empire'

Fox has announced Wednesday, Dec. 14 as the premiere date for drama “Star,” which will air at 9 p.m. ET out of the fall season-finale of “Empire.” “Star,” from “Empire” creator Lee Daniels, will then premiere in its regular Wednesday 9 p.m. ET time period effective on January 4.

The logline: Featuring a soundtrack of original music and stunning music performances, “Star” is an emotionally powerful drama that follows three talented young singers — desperate for a new start and with ambitions of stardom — as they navigate the cut-throat music business. The series stars Queen Latifah (“Bessie,” “Bringing Down The House”), Benjamin Bratt (“24: Live Another Day,” “Law & Order”) and newcomers Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny, Brittany O’Grady and Amiyah Scott. The series also will feature guest stars Lenny Kravitz (“Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” “The Hunger Games”), supermodel/actress Naomi Campbell and Grammy Award-nominated musician and actor Tyrese Gibson (“2 Fast 2 Furious”).
