There was a news story on the radio about Puffy and some deal he closed,” Strong recalled. “Hearing that story, I thought, ‘Hip-hop is so cool. I have to do something in hip-hop.’ I constantly work from mythological or Shakespearean concepts. … Maybe like King Lear or the Lion in Winter. The whole concept flooded into my head in 30 seconds. We were in postproduction on The Butler and I pitched it to [co-creator] Lee Daniels. …
I pitched it to him as a movie. Lee and I could do a hip-hop musical movie and Lee called me the next day and said he couldn’t stop thinking about the idea. Lee said, ‘Do you want to be rich?’ and in fact I do! He said we should do it as a TV show. I instantly knew he was right because it’s about a family and TV shows are about families … we instantly started talking about Dynasty and Dallas and we could do a black Dynasty. Empire was created from every single first idea that happened spontaneously.
All is well that ends well. We’re happy with a weekly dose of Empire, and can’t wait for it’s return in the fall.
