Queen Latifah is showing entertainment who holds the crown. Coming off the cusp of her iconic Wiz Live! role, the Queen scored a leading role in Lee Daniels’ untitled project to air on Fox.

Lee Daniels is developing the Fox version of Shondaland, clearly.

Variety reports that the untitled show will go into production in Atlanta this month.

The plot revolves around three women who form a girl group in hopes of super-stardom. Latifah will play a beauty shop owner who becomes a surrogate mother to the group.
