FOX Renews 'Lethal Weapon' and 'Star'

FOX has renewed its original drama series Lethal Weapon and Star for second seasons. Both renewals were announced today by David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.

Matt Miller developed the drama. He serves as executive producer with Dan Lin, Jennifer Gwartz and McG. Warner Bros. Television, Lin Pictures and Good Session Productions produce.

"Lethal Weapon continues to fire on all cylinders," said Madden. "Every week, it delivers a big, fun roller coaster ride, but also remains touchingly human and genuinely emotional, and that's due to the chemistry that's developed not only between Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford, but the entire cast. We want to thank our producing partners, Warner Bros., as well as Matt Miller, McG, Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz, who have done a fantastic job in crafting a series for which a second-season order is well deserved."

Star stars Jude Demorest, Brittany O'Grady, Ryan Destiny, Amiyah Scott, Quincy Brown, Benjamin Bratt and Queen Latifah.

Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy created the drama. They executive produce with Chuck Pratt, Pamela Oas Williams and Effie Brown. 20th Century Fox Television and Lee Daniels Entertainment produce.

"Lee Daniels is a true visionary and he and Tom Donaghy have delivered a series with a unique and meaningful point of view," said Madden. "Our incredible cast, led by Queen Latifah and Benjamin Bratt, instantly infused their characters with tremendous depth and passion, and the show has proved to be both powerful and really entertaining. We are thrilled that this Star will continue to shine for a second season."
