Empire has become a huge hit for Fox and one of the reasons for its success is the work of Lee Daniels.
Now Daniels is back with his latest offering for the network.
Star, the new pilot from Lee Daniels, will begin production this December in Atlanta, GA. The pilot, from 20th Century Fox Television, is written, directed and executive-produced by Daniels. Tom Donaghy (“The Whole Truth”) will serve as a writer and executive producer on the pilot with Daniels.
An international casting search is underway for the series talent, including three female leads who will play three young artists, all with hopes of making it big.
Star will feature the choices with which these artists are faced along the way, while showcasing the allure and heartache of the cut-throat music scene, and exploring cultural themes from a new perspective.
The project is the first to emerge from Daniels’ multi-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television.
