Over the past month, a new show has been making waves and setting records: FOX network’s. It’s about Lucious Lyon (played by Terrence Howard), a hip hop mogul who discovers he has a terminal illness and makes his sons compete for ownership of his company, Empire Enterprises. So, what’s the big deal about Empire? Here are 4 reasons why it belongs on your must-watch list.
The cast is predominantly black, and the show is being touted as the biggest thing on primetime TV in years.
Some series have mouth-watering big-name stars, but they rarely amount to much, especially in TV shows. Empire, though, makes full use of its stars.
From the charismatic Terrence Howard as the lead to the well-utilized Naomi Campbell, Courtney Love, Gabourey Sidibe, Macy Gray and more, every actor leaves an impact.
The show-stealer, however, is Taraji P. Henson, who plays Lucious’s ex-wife. Her fashion sense is unforgettable and her dialogue makes her unforgettable.
