Star is an all-American television musical drama created by Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy from FOX TV. The TV show revolves around the culture of a singing group.

Star Davis(Jude Demorest) is a very outspoken 18-year-old girl who grew up in and out of group homes and foster homes after the death of her mother.  Wanting badly to be something in life and pursue her singing career, she soon forms an all-girls singing group with her sister Simone and her best friend Alex.

Simone (Brittany O’Grady) is a 16-year-old girl who also grew up in and out of group homes and foster homes.  Sadly, she and her sister Star have gotten separated. She is rescued by Star from a sexually abusive foster home. Supportive of her sister’s ambitions, Simone has dreams of her own and will do whatever it takes to attain them.

Alex (Ryan Destiny) is a very wealthy 19-year-old African American young lady who grew up in New York. Alexandra is seeking to have her own voice away from her father who is famous. She wants to step out of his shadows, and make it on her own.  She finds love in a boy named Derek Jones (Quincy Brown). She becomes increasingly involved in political advocacy due to Derek.

My personal thoughts on Star is that the TV show is off the radar interesting. These 3 girls come from three different backgrounds, yet Star and Simone are sisters. Alex kept a secret from the other two that she is very wealthy with big money. When Simone and Star found out, they were very upset with her and Star responds and says, “If you had all this damn money, why didn’t you help out with the group when you know we needed it?” Alex responds by saying that she wants to make it on her own, without using her father’s fame.  The sisters didn’t understand where she was coming from but soon they got over it and continue the group.

Star airs Wednesdays on Fox at 9 pm. Watch it!
