Check out the brand new trailer for Lee Daniels‘ upcoming “Dreamgirls” inspired series “STAR.” Fox released the one-minute video along with Andra Day‘s now classic tune, “Rise Up” playing in the background. Fans will get a chance to see the first full episode of the new show on December 14 at 9 p.m. following the Season Three fall finale of “Empire” at 8 p.m.
As previously mentioned, “STAR” follows three talented young singers — desperate for a new start and with ambitions of stardom — as they navigate the cut-throat music business in Atlanta, GA. The series stars Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award, Grammy Award and Golden Globe Award winner Queen Latifah as “Carlotta” and Emmy Award nominee Benjamin Bratt as “Jahil” along with newcomers Jude Demorest as “Star,” Ryan Destiny as “Alexandra,” Brittany O’Grady as “Simone” and introducing transgender actress Amiyah Scott as Cotton.
The series will also feature guest stars Grammy Award winner Lenny Kravitz, supermodel/actress Naomi Campbell and Grammy Award-nominated musician and actor Tyrese Gibson. Former Bravo “Fashion Queen” and celebrity stylist Miss Lawrence will also make an appearance on the show along with “Saints & Sinners” actress and singer Jasmine Burke.
