About the show:
Lee Daniels partners with Tom Donaghy to pull back the curtain on music’s gritty and dark reality in STAR. Featuring a soundtrack of original music and stunning music performances, STAR follows three talented singers – running from their pasts and desperate for a new start – with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cut-throat music business on their road to success. But reality soon dawns on the girls’ fantasies, and they start to learn that ambition often comes at a cost.
Meet STAR, a tough-as-nails young woman, who came up in the foster care system and decides one day to take control of her destiny. Star tracks down her sister, SIMONE, and her Instagram bestie, ALEXANDRA, and together, the trio journeys to Atlanta with the hope of becoming music superstars.
Queen Latifah stars as CARLOTTA, a surrogate mother to the young crew that includes COTTON. Bratt plays JAHIL, a down-on-his-luck talent agent looking to revitalize his career, who’s taken a certain interest in Star. The series will also feature guest star and Lenny Kravitz.
On Star Season 1 Episode 3 “Next of Kin”, someone close to Carlotta is in danger, bringing out her protective nature; Jahil tries to raise money for a recording session; Simone’s past haunts her. You can watch the full episode below.
