Fox Network hit TV Series, Empire is billed for a cookie-licious spinoff
At the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills on Thursday, executive producer Lee Daniels announced that Empire franchise will be expanding
Lee Daniels said
“There is going to be a spinoff from Empire, without question,” he said. “There’s so much ripe story that we’ve talked about already— about Cookie’s family, what makes her her. That in itself is fascinating to me.”
Daniels elaborated that the spin-off would be a quasi-prequel that delves into Cookie’s upbringing in North Philadelphia.
“Here Cookie is now, but how did she get to where she’s at right now?” he shared. “Let’s go back and understand her mother, her sisters…. Let’s understand the makings of her… It’d be like a prequel.
