Lee Daniels, co-creator of hit TV series Empire, recently started developing a show titled Star. The proposed drama is about four young women — Star, Alexandra, Simone, and Cotton — in the process of forming a band and trying to make it in Atlanta.
According to Deadline, production will begin this December. The casting breakdown announced that the character of Cotton “is a half African-American and half Latina transgender woman with a stunning look,” and “an especially keen eye for fashion.”
Responding to the question of whether there will be any cross-program appearances, Fox Television Group CEO Dana Walden previously said, “It’s not inconceivable that the shows can cross.”
