Keke Palmer Joins ‘Star’ Cast
Star, the Empire spin-off that debuted last season to somewhat tepid ratings, is adding yet another high profile name to their season two roster. According to published reports, Keke Palmer has booked a recurring role on the musical drama, which stars Queen Latifah, Ryan Destiny, Jude Demorest, and Benjamin Bratt.
Keke will reportedly play Gigi, a popular recording artist being courted by the show’s Midtown Records. Described as equal parts “ratchet and rich,” Gigi will come on the scene early, bringing all sorts of drama as she seeks to find the best writers and producers to help map out the next stage of her career.
Star returns for its sophomore season on Wednesday, September 27th. The show will air at 9 pm following Empire, which has been moved up by an hour. Both shows are expected to feature several crossover episodes throughout the season.
Fans can also check out Keke on the upcoming season of Berlin Station. The Epix drama returns for its second season on October 15th at 9 pm.
