Empire Premieres Tonight!

By  |  0 Comments

Lee Daniel’s (The Butler, Precious, Monster’s Ball) and Danny Strong’s (The Butler, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and 2, Game Change) highly anticipated series, Empire, premieres tonight on FOX! Ever wonder about the untold secrets that permeate the circles of the Hip Hop elite? Empire is Fox’s latest drama/musical, focusing on the life and career of street hustler turned music exec and hip hop mogul, Luscious Lion (played by Terrance Howard). After discovers he is suffering from a terminal illness, Luscious Lion is forced to determine the future of the musical empire, creating much tension, distress, and drama between his relatives, business partners, and artists associated with his label.

The series also co-stars Gabourey Sidbide, Naomi Campbell, Macy Gray, Courtney Love and Taraji P Henson. If you recall, Taraji and Terrance starred together in the 2005, Academy Award Winning independent film, Hustle and Flow; their duet together, Hard Out Here for a Pimp (written by Three 6 Mafia), is what earned the film the esteemed gold man honor. If Terrance and Taraji’s chemistry is even half as powerful in Empire as it was in Hustle and Flow, with a soundtrack composed by Timberland, I predict this series is sure to be a grand slam, cult classic.
