FOX is teasing us with another new trailer from its forthcoming series, EMPIRE,  starring Oscar-nominated actors Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson.  In the one-minute clip, Howard’s character Lucious Lyons finds out he’s running out of time and needs an heir to watch the throne of his multi-million dollar hip-hop empire that is until his ex-wife, Cookie Lyons (played by Henson) steps into the picture to reclaim half of the fortune.

As previously reported, EMPIRE  follows a family-run-hip-hop dynasty governed by Lyons who is attempting to take his record company, Empire Entertainment public. His plans come to screeching halt when his ex-wife emerges from prison for drug trafficking and an all-out family war ensues.

Rounding out the all-star cast is Gabby Sidibe, Malik Yoba, Jussie Smollet, Gladys Knight, Naomi Campbell and Macy Gray. The one-and-only Timbaland serves as music producer for the show which will feature original and current music.

The Lee Daniels’ production airs this January on FOX!
