‘Star’ Episode Guide (Nov. 8): Ayana’s Father Visits

“May The Best Manager Win” (11/08/17) Ayana is quickly reminded of the tremendous pressure she is under to make her family proud, when her father (guest star Richard Roundtree) – a legendary music label executive – pays a visit to Midtown.

Alex continues to be haunted by her lies to Derek; Star and Simone differ on how best to deal with Brody’s mysterious return; and Noah faces a tense encounter with the police during an event thrown by the label.

Meanwhile, Jahil works on a plan to debut a new duo he’s discovered, featuring his nephew, Angel (guest star Evan Ross), and Ayanna’s assistant (guest star Elijah Kelley) in an all-new episode of “Star” airing Wednesday, Nov. 8 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Guest starring in this episode are Evan Ross as Angel Rivera, Elijah Kelley as Andy, Nealla Gordon as Arlene Morgan, Imani Lewis as Karen, Lance Gross as Maurice Jetter and Richard Roundtree as Charles Floyd.

The story of three girls’ rise to fame, “Star’s” first season ended on the heels of a victory, as the singing trio caught its first big break – winning Atlanta NextFest. Heading into Season Two, one thing is clear: their lives will never be the same. It’s a whole new world for the girls, as Star (Jude Demorest), Alexandra (Ryan Destiny) and Simone (Brittany O’Grady) prepare for their next career move, with help and guidance from Carlotta (Queen Latifah), the group’s new manager.

Having entered into a deal with Midtown Sound, the girls and Carlotta must contend with upheavals at their new label. Meanwhile, after a harrowing stint in prison, Cotton (Amiyah Scott) must find a way to re-enter society as a convicted felon. And, with Derek (Quincy Brown) facing the possibility of never walking again, Alexandra must work to keep their romance alive, while balancing her own career goals. Finally, the fate of Jahil (Benjamin Bratt) remains decidedly unclear, following last season’s shocking and explosive finale.

In addition to its ensemble cast, the series has featured a star-studded roster of guest stars, including Grammy Award winner Lenny Kravitz, supermodel/actress Naomi Campbell, Grammy Award-nominated musician and actor Tyrese Gibson, empress of soul Gladys Knight, Grammy Award winner Missy Elliott, Grammy Award-nominated artist Big Boi and Paris Jackson, who made her acting debut on the series.

“Star” stars Queen Latifah as Carlotta Brown, Benjamin Bratt as Jahil Rivera, Jude Demorest as Star Davis, Ryan Destiny as Alexandra, Brittany O’Grady as Simone Davis, Amiyah Scott as Cotton, Quincy Brown as Derek Jones, Michael Michele as Ayanna Floyd, Luke James as Noah Brooks, Stephen Dorff as Bobby Dean; and Miss Lawrence as Miss Bruce.

“Star” is a production of 20th Century Fox Television in association with Lee Daniels Entertainment. Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy are the creators and executive producers of the series. Pamela Oas Williams also serves as executive producer. Karin Gist serves as showrunner and executive producer on the series.
