Lee Daniels takes his ‘Empire’ to the country with new TV series


ABC/Lou RoccoEmpire co-creator Lee Daniels is going from hip hop to country music with his next TV series.

The Butler director is teaming with singer Brian Kelley from the award-winning superstar country duo Florida Georgia Line, to executive-produce a new ABC series titled Moss Landing.

The show will follow the love story of disgraced country star Marion James and Sky Miller, an African-American gospel and soul singer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

As previously reported, Daniels is also set to direct and executive-produce a film adaptation of the upcoming comics series Stealthabout an aging superhero battling Alzheimer’s disease.

The two-time Oscar nominee is also developing a TV series titled Cupcake Men, inspired by the true story of former NFL players Michael Griffin and Brian Orapko who opened a cupcake shop in Austin, Texas.
