EXCLUSIVE Get ready: TV’s biggest current phenomenon is about to get the royal treatment. “Empire,” Lee Daniels and Danny Strong’s hot as a pistol series about the music world, is coming to Carnegie Hall. I’m told that Fox will launch the new season with an all star screening and a huge party at the famed Hall on Saturday, September 12th.
They’re going to screen the first new episode in the hallowed, historic main theater. Then the guests– which will include Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, and loads of this season’s guest stars like Mariah Carey and Marisa Tomei– will take over the event spaces on the upper floors. That includes the new Carnegie Hall roof space. The first new episode of “Empire” airs on September 23rd, three days after the Emmy Awards.
And PS don’t worry– there will be plenty of Terrence Howard’s Luscious this season. It’s his “Empire”!
