‘Star’ Episode Guide (March 8): Dilemmas Threaten to Impact the Girls’ Future

“Saving Face” (03/08/17) – Star and Hunter take their relationship to the next level, while Rose (guest star Naomi Campbell) returns to help Alex and Derek deal with the aftermath of a traumatic experience.

Carlotta reveals her reasoning for keeping a secret to herself for all of these years, and Cotton does the unthinkable to the one person she trusts the most.

Meanwhile, the girls have a publicity photo shoot with social media guru Rachel Wells (guest star Paris Jackson), and someone is finally arrested and charged for Otis’ murder in an all-new episode of “Star” airing Wednesday, March 8 (9:01-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Guest starring in this episode are Naomi Campbell as Rose Spencer; Paris Jackson as Rachel Wells; Big Boi as himself; Miss Lawrence as Miss Bruce; Chad James Buchanan as Hunter Morgan; and Sharlene Taule as Eva.

Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Lee Daniels – creator and executive producer of broadcast’s No. 1 series, “Empire” – partners with Tom Donaghy (“The Whole Truth”) to pull back the curtain on music’s gritty and dark reality in “Star.”

Featuring a soundtrack of original music and stunning music performances, “Star” follows three talented singers – running from their pasts and desperate for a new start – with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cut-throat music business on their road to success. But reality soon dawns on the girls’ fantasies, and they start to learn that ambition often comes at a cost.

Meet Star (newcomer Jude Demorest), a tough-as-nails young woman, who came up in the foster care system and decides one day to take control of her destiny. Star tracks down her sister, Simone (newcomer Brittany O’Grady), and her Instagram bestie, Alexandra (newcomer Ryan Destiny), and together, the trio journeys to Atlanta with the hope of becoming music superstars.

Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award, Grammy Award and Golden Globe Award winner Queen Latifah (“Bessie,” “Bringing Down The House”) stars as Carlotta, a surrogate mother to the young crew that includes Cotton (newcomer Amiyah Scott).

Emmy Award nominee Benjamin Bratt (“24: Live Another Day,” “Law & Order”) plays Jahil, a down-on-his-luck talent agent looking to revitalize his career, who’s taken a certain interest in Star. The series will also feature guest star and Grammy Award winner Lenny Kravitz (“Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” “The Hunger Games”).

“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. Charles Murray will serve as executive producer and showrunner for the series. Pamela Oas Williams and Effie Brown also serve as executive producers.
