About EMPIRE:Hip-hop artist and CEO of Empire Entertainment, Lucious Lyon, has always ruled unchallenged, but a medical diagnosis predicts he will be incapacitated in three years, which prompts the sharks to circle.Without further damaging his family, he must decide which of his three sons will take over. His favorite, young Hakeem, is a gifted musician but values fame over hard work. Middle son, Jamal, is talented and shy but gay — embarrassing to Lyon. The oldest, Andre, is business-minded but lacks charisma. The reappearance of Cookie, his ex-wife, complicates things; she says he owes her for taking the fall for the drug-running that financed his early career.

In December, Liquid Soul hosted a series of VIP red carpet screenings that started in Chicago where the series is being filmed and ended in Philadelphia, the hometown of EMPIRE‘s director Lee Daniels and cast member Bryshere Gray [aka "Yazz The Greatest"], a talented young Hip Hop artist turned actor.Based upon the feedback we received from those that attended, EMPIRE will definitely be the show to watch!
