FOX has released a pair of videos spotlighting two of some of the major players viewers will see when they tune into the network’s highly-anticipated new series Star.

The behind-the-scenes look (below) features interviews with Queen Latifah (Carlotta Brown) and Benjamin Bratt (Jahil Rivera) along with series creator Lee Daniels.

“All these girls really need some mothering,” Queen Latifah says of the series’ young trio. “I think Carlotta will accept that that’s what she really has to be regardless of how terrified she is.”

“To learn who Carlotta is,” Latifah continues, “I’ve had to look through Lee’s mind to really land on what’s the real.”

“It’s clear from the jump street that Jahil takes immediate interest in Star,” Benjamin Bratt explains of his character Jahil Rivera, a talent manager who’s involved with some nefarious business. “I think he recognizes in her not only her inherent talent, but her keen ambition, which is really a good match to his own.”

Watch the videos below to find out more about the characters and to why Carlotta and Jahil do not get along.

Three talented singers (Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O’Grady), desperate for a new start and with ambitions of stardom, navigate the cut-throat music business on their road to success.

With a soundtrack of original music and stunning music performances, the series also features guest star and Grammy Award winner Lenny Kravitz (“Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” “The Hunger Games”).

STAR, the special premiere, airs December 14 on FOX.
