We have known for awhile now that Fox green-lit Lee Daniels (Empire, The Butler) new series Star. The buzz surrounding it is huge, easily reminiscent of Lee Daniels other hit series, Empire. Today, at Fox’s Upfront presentation of new series, a riveting trailer for the show was released and it promises to enthrall you! Check it out below!
AMAZING, right? At first, we thought “Star” was the name of the girl group, now we see it is about a single girl who happens to be apart of a girl group. Star’s story seems moving, and realistic. As a social worker, you see her story far too many times in foster care. Unfortunately, you never hear of endings like this. The show reminds me of Mariah Carey in Glitter, a film that flopped in the box office thanks to 9/11. We wonder if there will be crossovers with Empire. It definitely seems feasible!
Lee Daniels definitely delivers with the star power! Queen Latifah, Lenny Kravitz, and Benjamin Bratt are all amazing actors, and the former two are true artists! We have no doubt that Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny, and Brittany O’Grady will truly become household names as “Star,” “Alexandra,” and “Simone,” respectively. All we can say now is, “is it fall yet?” Catch Star on Fox this Fall, and check back here for episode recaps and updates on your new favorite show!
