Watch Star

In the newest brainchild from creators Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy, a trio of woman forms a musical group in Atlanta, Georgia. Star Davis is a tough teen who's desperate to make it big after spending her childhood in and out of foster care, with little more than the clothes on her back. Alecx is a well-off, upper-class trying to shed her privileged past and set her sights on more authentic modes of musical artistry. Simone, Star's sister, is a talented youngster still bound by the foster system, looking to music and to her sister for escape. These three young, talented vocalists will be tested- creatively, professionally, and emotionally- if they want to make it in the music biz. Much like Lee Daniels' Empire, Star will contain original scores and feature numerous notable hip-hop cameos, such as Nicholas Gonzalez, Benjamin Bratt, and Queen Latifah.
