Lee Daniels Developing Pilot Titled “Star” For FOX

by Rafeal Crawford

Lee Daniels is developing another series for FOX television. The Empire creator is creating a pilot based on three girls from Atlanta that form a girl group. The pilot would be titled Star, and would follow the group as they try to make it in the music business.

Daniels said Star is partially inspired by Dreamgirls the Broadway that eventually came to the big screen.

“Lee talks a lot about everything fromDreamgirlsto modern-day girl groups that are manufactured, that are put together, that don’t have an organic reason to be together but are tied to each other and that set-up lends itself to a great soap operatic storytelling machine,” FOX Chairman and CEO Dana Walden added. “Lee loved the mixture of drama and soap and music, and thinks it’s a very potent combo.”

No air date for the debut ofStar, but Lee Daniels is preparing for the second season ofEmpire that debuts Sept. 23rd at 9:00 p.m.
