Empire creator Lee Daniels is working on a new project called Star. Star is also a television series and it is about the rise of an all-girl band group on their journey to fame and fortune.
Star will see Daniels craft another TV classic full of real life drama and suspense. It will be set in Atlanta Georgia and two of the three girls will be Nigeria’s Uzo Aduba of Orange Is the New Black and Amber Riley of Glee.
Star will be produced by 20th Century Fox TV and it is part of the long deal that Daniels signed with them. The studio gave a statement on the forthcoming project and reason Lee was chosen to shoot it. Fox spokesperson Dana Walden said, “The project features a lot of Lee’s own DNA and represents a new perspective, that of the artist. The setup lends to a great soap operatic storytelling machine.“
