Fox’s new show Star is another gem to add into Producer and Director Lee Daniels collection. Mr. Daniels is also the creator of Empire among other films. Even though we have see many shows about real life stories about fame and money, this show brings the true story behind the real stars. Being in the public eye we only see the glitz and the glamour, but if you do not see the root of the tree you will never understand the full story. The show once again brings new actors and actresses to light, while giving so many little girls hope about their own lives.
