New Teaser: Lee Daniels’ TV series ‘Empire’

Here’s your first look at a new teaser for the anticipated FOX series ‘Empire.’
Coming from Lee Daniels, the anticipated Hip-Hop based drama will officially premiere in January (2015) with cast including Terrence Howard, Taraji Henson (pictured), Gladys Knight, Gabourey Sidibe, Naomi Campbell and much more.
LUCIOUS LYON (Terrence Howard) is the king of hip-hop. An immensely talented artist, the CEO of Empire Entertainment and a former street thug, his reign has been unchallenged for years. But all that changes, when he learns he has a disease that is going to render him crippled and incapacitated in a matter of three years. The clock is ticking, and he must groom one of his three sons to take over his crowning achievement, without destroying his already fractured family. Lucious’ favorite is his youngest son, HAKEEM (newcomer Bryshere Gray), a gifted musician and a spoiled playboy who values fame over hard work. The middle son, JAMAL (Jussie Smollett), is a sensitive soul and a musical prodigy who, unlike Hakeem, shies away from the spotlight. Jamal also happens to be gay, which infuriates and embarrasses his father. ANDRE (Trai Byers), the eldest son, is CFO of Empire Entertainment. Wharton-educated with a brilliant business mind, Andre lacks the charisma that Lucious believes is crucial to running the company.
