Fox Broadcasting Company has given series orders to new dramas "24: Legacy" and "Star." Both series are scheduled to premiere in the upcoming 2016-17 season.

"24: Legacy" is the next chapter in the groundbreaking and award-winning action series from Emmy Award-winning executive producer Howard Gordon, Academy Award- and Emmy Award-winning executive producer Brian Grazer, writers and executive producers Manny Coto and Evan Katz, director and executive producer Stephen Hopkins and executive producer and original series star Kiefer Sutherland.

Starring Corey Hawkins ("Straight Outta Compton"), Miranda Otto ("Homeland") and Jimmy Smits ("Sons of Anarchy"), "24: Legacy" chronicles an adrenaline-fueled race against the clock to stop a devastating terrorist attack on U.S. soil - in the same real-time format that has propelled this genre-defining series.

"Star" is a music-infused drama from Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy.

In "Star," three talented singers navigate the cutthroat music business on their road to success. Featuring three newcomers (Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O'Grady) as the young singers, plus Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award, Grammy Award and Golden Globe Award winner Queen Latifah and Emmy Award nominee Benjamin Bratt, the series will feature original music, along with stunning musical fantasy sequences, as the girls dream of their future. The series will also feature guest star Lenny Kravitz.
