Empire creator Lee Daniels is ready to bring his midas touch to another music industry-based show. The Academy Award-nominated producer is giving fans a preview of his next dramatic series called Star.
According to the synopsis, the drama will pull back the curtain on the dark reality of the music business. The series follows three talented singers as they try to navigate through the cut-throat music business on their road to success.
