FOX will unveil its new drama “Star” a little earlier than planned.
The network announced Wednesday that it’s moving up the premiere of the new show from “Empire” co-creator Lee Daniels to December and pair it with the fall finale of “Empire.”
On Dec. 14, “Empire” will air at 8 p.m. ET/PT, an hour earlier than its usual time, leading into the debut of “Star” at 9. The new show will take over the 9 p.m. spot for the winter starting Jan. 4, while “Empire” resumes in the spring.
“Star” comes from Daniels and co-creator Tom Donaghy (“The Mentalist”) and centers on three young women (Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O’Grady) trying to make it in the music business. Queen Latifah, Benjamin Bratt and Amiyah Scott also star; guest stars for Season 1 include Lenny Kravitz, Tyrese Gibson and Naomi Campbell.
“Star” will pair with “Lethal Weapon” on Wednesday nights in the winter. “Empire” is set to return in the spring, where it will air following FOX’s limited series “Shots Fired.”
