Brewer-directed 'Empire' episode is tonight (Oct. 7)
John Beifuss writes in The Commercial Appeal about Memphis director Craig Brewer’s latest projects, including an episode of the wildly popular “Empire” that will be broadcast Wednesday at 8 p.m. (Central) on the Fox network.
“Empire” stars Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard who were also in Brewer’s “Hustle & Flow” 10 years ago (a client project of the Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission).
Beifuss quotes Brewer as saying the episode "Fires of Heaven," has "the typical twists and turns of the wonderful 'Empire' universe, but the music I think is crazy good.”
The story also notes that Brewer has just completed shooting the pilot episode of a proposed Fox network/Paramount Television series, "Urban Cowboy."
