Chuck Pratt has job security for at least another TV season. Fox has renewed the Lee Daniels soap opera, Star, for a second season. Pratt was quickly snapped up to serve as showrunner for the series in 2016, after being fired from CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless.
Star centers on a troubled, fledgling girl group (Jude Demorest, Brittany O'Brady and Ryan Destiny) trying to make it big in Atlanta, Georgia. Queen Latifah and Benjamin Bratt headline the soap. Former Y&R star Darius McCrary also recurs.
