The report also states that Queen Latifah has joined the cast of “Empire” co-creator Lee Daniels‘ new untitled Fox drama pilot. The show is set in the Atlanta area and centers around the rise of an all female singing group made up of 3 members. The group is led by a white woman who formed the group with 2 African American singers.  Queen Latifah will be playing the owner of a beauty parlor in  Atlanta that befriends the girls and acts as their mentor.
