Season 2 of “Empire” begins, on Sept. 23, 2015 at 9:00 p.m., 8:00 Central time. Like many, I have become obsessed with the show, from the family tensions, to the world of music, the amazing fashion and even Cookie beating her child with a broom (don’t judge – you know that’s how it was done back in the day).
To help prepare you for the grand event, we offer this link from the May 11 episode of Gene Demby’s “PostBourgie” podcast, where he and co-host Terryn interviewed “Empire” writer and author Attica Locke. She is the author of the book Pleasantville, which is set 15 years after the events in her previous book, Black Water Rising.
Once you’ve finished the podcast, please enjoy this video that takes a look behind the scences of the show.
