IGN: Star: Series Premiere Review

Recommended Posts

Star and Empire, Lee Daniels' musical soaps, share plenty of DNA. But while Empire is a slick look at the big problems that come with big success in the music industry, the creator's newest series, which has technically already debuted with a preview airing in December -- but will move to its regular Wednesdays at 9pm timeslot (a.k.a. the Empire hour) on January 4 -- is a grittier look at how one makes it to the top.

While both series feature regular musical numbers (Empire's are usually in-context performances, but Star goes the traditional musical route - any time, anywhere), Empire is full of glitz and glamour and the many furs of Cookie Lyon, and Star is full of three wannabe R&B star teenage girls who aspire to one day have a wardrobe worthy of Cookie Lyon.
