TV WEEK: Empire series premiere billboards...

Empire series premiere billboard
The new family hip-hop drama Empire marks Lee Daniels first foray into television (along with his writing collaborator Danny Strong), and sees Terrence Howard's music mogul 'Lucious Lyon' discover that he has ALS and needing to find a successor to his empire.

With only a short time to groom one of his three sons to take over the family business in a music industry filled with glamour, danger, sex and power, matters are complicated by the release of his drug-smuggling ex-wife from prison, 'Cookie Lyon' (played by Taraji P. Henson), who also feels entitled to the empire she helped build. Let the battle begin.

Oscar-nominee Terrence Howard stared in Lee Daniels' 2013 movie The Butler and is also joined by the star of 2009's Precious, fellow Academy Award-nominated Gabourey Sidibe, as his hardworking assistant, 'Becky'.

Taraji P. Henson looks every bit the schemer in these billboards for Empire snapped high over Beverly Boulevard on December 4 and December 9, 2014, and if you're a fan of the actress, be sure to also check her out naked in this anti-fur billboard for PETA.

UPDATED: It's TV awards campaigning season and Cookie wants some bling on her mantle, so here's the 2015 Emmy consideration billboard for the debut season of Fox's ratings-winning freshman show, spotted along Santa Monica Boulevard in West L.A. on May 30, 2015.

UPDATED: Taraji P. Henson was the only person to nab an Emmy nomination for Empire, although people do think 'She's spectacular' as Cookie Lyon, so let's wait and see if she can take home the grand prize this year. This Emmy nomination billboard featuring the actress in character was spied high above San Vicente Boulevard on August 12, 2015.
