Jude Demorest as Star Davis
Star is the new series from Lee Daniels that Fox hopes will be as big as Empire. In fact, the network gave the pilot a special timeslot on Wednesday, December 14 at 9 p.m. ET after the Empire mid-season finale to get the show a bigger audience. After that, the second episode of the show doesn't air until Wednesday, January 4.
The show features Jude Demorest as Star Davis, a determined young woman who grew up in a foster care system. She is hoping to live up to her name, so she recruits her friend Alexandra (Ryan Destiny) and her sister Simone (Brittany O'Grady) with the dream of becoming stars in the Atlanta music scene.
This is Demorest's first starring role, although she did appear in six episodes of the Dallas reboot. She was also featured in a 2014 episode of The Middle. She co-wrote the Fifth Harmony single "Work From Home." (FOX)
