Lee Daniels director behind Precious and The Butler may have another hit in his hands venturing into network television for the first time. Daniel's new show Empire which will air in early 2015 on Fox has acquired the rights to Naomi Campbell's acting capabilities.
Campbell will star alongside Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard on the hip hop drama with what is being dubbed a reoccurring role. The show will also feature the musical talents of Timbaland as well.
The family drama is set in the world of a hip-hop empire and stars Taraji P. Henson as Cookie Lyon, the ex-wife of Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), the head of a record label at the center of the series.
Campbell will portray Camilla, an alluring woman involved in a steamy affair with the much-younger Hakeem (newcomer Bryshere Gray), the potential heir to Lucious' throne. Tasha exercises considerable influence over Hakeem.
With such star studded talent starring and producing this show one has to think Fox and Daniels are on to something.
