FOX is reportedly mulling a major merger for its flagship music dramas this Fall.
According to TV Line, the network plans a unique crossover between ‘Empire’ and ‘Star’ – two productions spearheaded by Lee Daniels.
The pairing would be a one-off premiere event on September 27th – which is when both titles return for their fourth and second seasons respectively.
Beyond being plausible from a storyline perspective, it’ll also be a smart synchronization for the shows which will be airing alongside each other on Wednesday nights.
FOX are remaining mum on the matter, but word on the curb is that folk can definitely expect to see mixing, meshing, and messing between Cookie, Carlotta, and co.
This sounds like a cool concept.
For us, ‘Empire’ has yet to recapture the magic of its first season and in many ways has become a victim of its own enormity. At least from a quality standpoint. While ‘Star’ is still finding its footing.
As such, this has the potential to shake things up in a mutually beneficial way.
