Taraji P. Henson is coming for what belongs to her in the new promo for FOX’s hip-hop drama, “Empire.”

The actress reunited with her “Hustle & Flow” co-star Terrence Howard for the series that is, which is set to debut in January.

To give prospective viewers an idea of what to expect, FOX slipped a one-minute promo for the series into the commercials during the World Series the other night.

It’s probably best not to assume anything about the storyline from a teaser, but there are a few things that we can tell definitively. It seems that Terrence torn about who he should hand his company over to; the problem is that he may not have much time to make a decision because he’s got a life-threatening illness.

Just as he’s about to pick a successor, his ex-wife (played by Taraji) has come out of lockup to collect her share of the good life. Seconds after being set free, she’s draping herself in the flyest of fashions and trying to call a few shots. It’s not clear if she went in as a result of covering for Terrence; if so, we’d say she’s about due to reap the benefits!
