ON AN ALL-NEW "STAR"
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, ON FOX
Nicole Ari Parker and Kimberly Elise Guest-Star
To campaign for the ASA Awards, Gravity throws an Easter brunch showcasing their artists, but as the awards draw nearer, the future of Take 3 and their solo careers are on the line. As the label faces possible bankruptcy, Carlotta must rally the troops to woo Empire executive, Giselle (guest star Nicole Ari Parker), in hopes she will invest. Star struggles to juggle Davis and her career, and clashes with Noah's mom, Dianne (guest star Kimberly Elise). Meanwhile, Alex plans for her future and Simone doubles down on her activism, which puts Angel (guest star Evan Ross) in danger in the all-new "Square One" episode of STAR airing Wednesday, April 24 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
