Actor Terrence Howard is reuniting with his The Butler director Lee Daniels to star in his forthcoming TV drama series.

The filmmaker is set to make his small screen debut with Empire, and he has tapped Oscar nominee Howard to lead the cast as rap label boss Lucious Lyon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The project will be Howard's second big TV project - he will also feature in M. Night Shyamalan's Wayward Pines series, which will premiere in July. Both shows will air on Fox.
