Lee Daniels’ new series, Star, has found a home. Fox has snagged it for the 2016 — 2017 season, according to Variety. The network has greenlit the “Empire” co-creator’s show with a 13-episode order. Contrary to reports, “Star” is not a spin-off of Fox’s hit show, Empire. According to the site,
it follows three talented singers who navigate the cut-throat music business on their road to success. Newcomers Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O’Grady star as the young singers, alongside Queen Latifah and Benjamin Bratt. Announced on Wednesday, Lenny Kravitz will guest star. “Star,” co-created by Daniels and Tom Donaghy, will feature original music and stunning musical fantasy sequences.
Lee confirmed the news on Instagram, posting a clip with the cast.
