Taraji P. Henson on Empire: "It Is Dynasty Meets The Sopranos Meets Glee"



Fox’s Empire, one of the most anticipated new series of the 2015 season by the Daytime Confidential crew, finally premieres this Wednesday! The hip-hop soap stars Terrance Howard as drug dealer-turned-music mogul Lucious Lyon and Taraji P. Henson as his fresh-from-prison ex-wife, Cookie.

Henson dropped by Live! With Kelly and Michael on Monday to promote the splashy, new serial. Here’s how she described Empire:

“In a nutshell, it is Dynasty meets the Sopranos meets Glee…It’s the high drama of Dynasty with all the glitz and glamor of fashion. It’s the dysfunction of the family in the Sopranos and the music element like Glee. “

Do you think Empire is the next Dynasty and will you be watching?

Empire premieres Wednesday night at 9/8C on Fox. Check out four first look videos below!
