Imagine Television, in association with 20th Century Fox Television, introduces a brand-new series created by Academy Award® nominee Lee Daniels and Emmy Award® winner Danny Strong. Empire is a sexy and powerful new drama about the head of a music empire whose three sons and ex-wife all battle to succeed him on his throne. Featuring music by award-winning producer Timbaland, the series stars Academy Award® nominees Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson in this story of a family dynasty that revolves around glamour, danger, and power.
If the exceptional cast doesn’t give you enough reason to tune in, then one look at Henson’s (as ex-wife Cookie) scene-stealing styles will. Created by costume designer Rita McGhee, Cookie’s luxurious fashion and decadent flair exudes allure. She’s a boss for sure! From cast to costumes, Empire reflects how powerful the music industry is and makes no apologies. The battle for the Empire begins January 7 at 9 p.m. (8 p.m. central) on FOX. And spoiler alert! Naomi Campbell just landed a role on the show. Check out the trailer below and get excited.
