Trivia

The scene in the pilot when Lucious throws young Jamal in the garbage was taken from Lee Daniels' childhood. His own father had done this to him when he was a child. When filming the scene, after a few takes, Lee told Terrance Howard to be more forceful. He wanted it to be done the same way it was done to him. See more »

Typical FOX series, time wasted.
19 April 2017 | by (Madrid) – See all my reviews

Don't expect to learn any from the music world, this is only a stupid collection of unreal stereotypes.

Same about families. Real life are very different.

Awful, predictable, uninteresting...

Really annoying.
