Airdate: Star

On Friday ELEVEN premieres new US music drama Star, created by Lee Daniels (Empire) and playwright / screenwriter Tom Donaghy.

The series starring Queen Latifah, Benjamin Bratt, Amiyah Scott and Quincy Brown, centres around a young, troubled girl and her quest for music stardom.

Amiyah Scott became the second openly trans person to play a trans major character in a scripted television drama series in America.

It premiered in the US in December and was renewed for a second season.

So far there is no word on a returning date for Empire, which is now well behind, but I would tip it to follow these 12 episodes.

Star is a tough-as-nails young woman who has been raised in the foster care system. But rather than her unconventional upbringing dulling her dreams, it has given her the strength to pursue them.

Committed to following the path to fame in the cut-throat music industry, Star tracks down her sister Simone and her Instagram bestie Alexandra, and the trio make their way to Atlanta. Once there, the girls find support in the form of mother-figure Carlotta and a has-been talent agent named Jahil, who takes an interest in Star.

But as the young women chase their dream, they find that ambition can come with a high price to pay.

7.30pm Friday, 24 March on ELEVEN.

Pulled: Star

Eleven is wasting no time pulling the new series Star from the schedule after just a single episode.

Unfortunately the channel does not seem to be rescheduling elsewhere.

Repeats of How I Met Your Mother and New Girl will air Friday nights.
