EMPIRE is a powerful new drama that follows LUCIOUS LYON (Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard, “Crash,” “Hustle & Flow”), the head of a music empire whose reign has been unchallenged for years. But all that changes when he learns he has a disease and must choose one of his three sons to take over: ANDRE (Trai Bryers, “90210”), JAMAL (Jussie Smollett, “North,” “The Mighty Ducks”) or HAKEEM (acting newcomer Bryshere Gray, a.k.a. Yazz The Greatest). Complicating matters is their mother and Lucious’ ex-wife, COOKIE (Academy Award and Emmy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson, “No Good Deed,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”), who emerges from prison to claim her share.

Empire “Pilot” airs Wednesday, January 7, at 9pm on FOX.
