Several weeks ahead of its Upfronts presentation, Fox is announcing official series pick-ups for 24: LEGACY and STAR for the 2016-2017 season.
“24: LEGACY is the next chapter in the groundbreaking and award-winning action series from Emmy Award-winning executive producer Howard Gordon (HOMELAND, 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY), Academy Award- and Emmy Award-winning executive producer Brian Grazer (24), writers and executive producers Manny Coto and Evan Katz (24), director and executive producer Stephen Hopkins (24) and executive producer and original series star Kiefer Sutherland.
The series stars Corey Hawkins (STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON), Miranda Otto (HOMELAND) and Jimmy Smits (SONS OF ANARCHY).
Meanwhile, STAR is a music-infused drama from Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Lee Daniels (EMPIRE) and Tom Donaghy (THE WHOLE TRUTH). “In STAR, three talented singers navigate the cut-throat music business on their road to success. Featuring three newcomers (Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O’Grady) as the young singers, plus Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award, Grammy Award and Golden Globe Award winner Queen Latifah (BESSIE) and Emmy Award nominee Benjamin Bratt (LAW & ORDER), the series will feature original music, along with stunning musical fantasy sequences, as the girls dream of their future. The series will also feature guest star Lenny Kravitz.”
