Returning: Star. Gone: Empire
Annoying changes to Thursday nights on ELEVEN after next week.
ELEVEN is making some changes to Thursday nights after next week.
US music drama Star, created by Lee Daniels (Empire) and playwright / screenwriter Tom Donaghy is having another go. This originally debuted in March but was quickly pulled. It will begin again from Ep 1 on 10.55pm Thursday, 20 July.
But the bad news is ELEVEN is yanking Empire after next week. I’m advised it will return later in the year. Frankly I can’t really see this change making much difference other than annoying Empire viewers.
Star is a tough-as-nails young woman who has been raised in the foster care system. But rather than her unconventional upbringing dulling her dreams, it has given her the strength to pursue them.
Committed to following the path to fame in the cut-throat music industry, Star tracks down her sister Simone and her Instagram bestie Alexandra, and the trio make their way to Atlanta. Once there, the girls find support in the form of mother-figure Carlotta and a has-been talent agent named Jahil, who takes an interest in Star.
But as the young women chase their dream, they find that ambition can come at a high price.
