I am currently addicted to this new series showing on Astro Starworld.
Empire is a series about a family business in the hip hop world.
Terrence Howard stars as Lucious Lyon and Taraji P Henson as ex wife Cookie Lyon. I find this series really interesting because every episode has its own drama unfolding plus the exciting new music sung by the family. The hip hop music produced really caught my interest and a veteran like Terrence Howard in a series must be something!
The Lyon family is royalty in the Hip Hop entertainment and the bickering, scandals and the fashion even makes this series a hit. Not surprising that it was renewed for Season 2 after rave reviews. Also, the guest stars are overflowing every episode. Naomi Campbell, Courtney Love, Raven Symone, Estelle, Snoop Dogg just to name a few caught me by surprise in the series.
It's been a long time since a good drama series really interests me. Plus check their music out in youtube and you will see the soundtrack has even been performed on the American Idol stage. Good drama and good music makes a very succesful combination!
This is definitely my newest guilty pleasure!
