TV Series
    Although set in New York City, the program is filmed in Chicago.
    The show is based on Shakespeare's 'King Lear' and James Goldman's 'The Lion in Winter.'
    The 'Lucious' character, portrayed as an ex-drug dealer turned rap mogul, is based on a combination of Jay-Z and Sean 'Diddy' Combs.
    'Cookie,' a drug courier who did a 17-year bid behind bars, took inspiration from villainess 'Alexis Carrington' of 'Dynasty.'
    The ratings fell off significantly from season one to season three.
    50 Cent claimed the premise was a knock-off of his Starz series 'Power.'
    The show's nascent season was the first program in over a decade to increase ratings each week.
    Taraji drew universal praise for her charismatic, glamorous portrayal of 'Cookie, ' including the legendary scene where she whipped up her fur coat, exposing her voluptuous booty to a love rival, taunting 'This is an ass!'
    Homophobia in the black community, mental illness stigmas, police brutality, colorism and drug addiction were a few of the topics openly tackled.
    Top notch guest stars included Naomi Campbell, Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, Marisa Tomei, Rita Ora, and Snoop.
    It proved a drama with an all-black cast can be a ratings winner.
    Following its success came a handful of black family dramas, including OWN's 'Greenleaf' and 'Queen Sugar,' and TV One's 'Media.'
