Lee Daniels, the master mind behind the hit shows Empire and now Star, is no stranger to great cinematic productions and success on the small screen. And all-star casts? He’s got that too.
Lee talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about teaming up with Queen Latifah and Tyrese, the importance of the music in his projects and those Empire comparisons.
On the synopsis of Star:
“We plot these girls that are fighting for their dreams to be singers in the backdrop of what is going on in the world today.”
The importance of the old school music in the series:
“I wanted to give a voice to…today’s music is very over-produced, the imperfection makes the perfection.”
Star airs on Fox Wednesdays at 9p/8p CST. Click the link below to hear the entire interview.
