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”).
