Lee Daniels is preparing to present the world with another smash TV show, and he’s begun casting for his new project titled Star.
The Empire creator is looking for three leading ladies and a transgender actress for the series, which will be a music-themed drama about three girls forming a band.
Production for the FOX pilot is set to begin this December in Atlanta.
No word yet on when it will air, but take a look below at what Daniels is searching for:
STAR: Character is a Caucasian female, 18 years old (actor must be 18 years of age or over). She’s a tough chick with a badass attitude.
ALEXANDRA: Character is an African-American female, about 20 (actor must be 18 years of age or over). She’s an elegant yet classic beauty. Alexandra wants to put this material world behind her so she can make real, authentic music.
SIMONE: Character is Half African-American Half Caucasian, Star’s younger sister, 16 years old (actor must be 18 years of age or over). Tragic and adorable.
COTTON: Character is a half African-American and Half Latina transgender woman with a stunning look, 20 (actor must be 18 years of age or over). She has an especially keen eye for fashion.
