”Star” co-creator, writer and executive producer Lee Daniels is “f-ighting” to keep the musical drama series alive after it was canceled at Fox earlier this month ahead of its upfront presentation.
“F-ighting guys! Will know this week or top of next! I’m NOT letting them STOP the CULTURE.. SORRY!!” Daniels posted on Instagram, along with a clip from the show. Daniels is also known for co-creating “Empire.” “Star” ran for three seasons. Set in hiphop haven Atlanta, “Star” follows three young women (Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O’Grady) who form a musical act and navigate the cutthroat business on their way to success.
The cast also includes Queen Latifah, Benjamin Bratt, and Lenny Kravitz as a guest star.
Daniels’ vow to shop “Star” around to other networks and streaming platforms comes in the wake of other canceled shows that have found new homes, like “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Designated Survivor” and “Lucifer.”
However, social media initiatives to save shows don’t always come to fruition — as the failure to resuscitate the recently-canceled “Whiskey Cavalier” showed.
“Star” is a co-production of Lee Daniels Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Television.
20th Century Fox did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
