Beverly Hills, Calif. — Fox has ordered drama pilot Star from Lee Daniels, the network announced Thursday during its TCA summer press tour session.
Star centers on an Atlanta-based music group. But Dana Walden, chairman and CEO of Fox Television Group, clarified that the series exists outside of Fox hit Empire.
The network has also ordered a limited series reboot of Prison Break.
“I would describe it as a bit of a sequel,” said Dana Walden, chairman and CEO, Fox Television Group, adding that it will pick up where that series left off.
The 10-episode revamp will feature original series stars Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller.
