Timbaland to Produce Music for Lee Daniels’ Hip-Hop Pilot

Timbaland Empire Lee Daniels Fox

Grammy Award-winning Tim “Timbaland” Mosley has signed on to write and produce the music for the Fox pilot, “Empire,” Variety has learned.

The family drama, which is penned by Daniels and Strong and directed by Daniels, is set in the world of the hip-hop industry and stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson. It’s executive-produced by Daniels, Strong, Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo. It will feature original and current music.

This world is something Mosley understands well. In 2013 alone, the sought-after producer, songwriter and rapper produced and co-wrote multiple tracks on four of the year’s biggest selling multi-platinum-albums: “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” “The 20/20 Experience Part I” and “Part II,” and “Beyonce.” While he has worked with movie productions before, this endeavor marks the first time Mosley has worked so closely on a drama pilot.
