Fresh off the success of Fox’s hit show Empire, the show’s co-creator and producer Lee Daniels is developing another show tentatively titled Star. The show will be musically themed and centered around a female girl group, which was brought by Fox with a pilot commitment. Daniels will write and executive produce the show, which is set in Atlanta.

On Thursday, Fox bosses Dana Walden and Gary Newman offered up details on the upcoming show, which explores the cutthroat music scene and asks the question, what do you do to rise to the top? Explaining that Daniels “talks a lot about everything from ‘Dreamgirls’ to modern-day girl groups that are manufactured, they are put together, they don’t have an organic reason to be together,” Walden said. “That setup lends to a great soap operatic storytelling machine.”
As for crossover episodes between “Star” and “Empire,” there is a strong possibility, though no plans are set. “It is modern-day music music in Atlanta and ‘Empire’ is modern-day music business in New York,” Walden said. “It’s not inconceivable that the two shows can cross.” via [variety]
