Columbus Short is Readying a Gospel Inspired ‘Empire’


 Columbus Short is coming back to television , last year Mr. Short had a lot of setbacks, which cost him his job. But there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.


According to

While promoting his latest film The Girl is in Trouble, executive produced by Spike Lee, Short told Shadow and Act about several projects he’s involved with. From an African spin on “American Idol” to an “Empire”-inspired gospel series, the 32-year-old actor certainly has his hands full.
He revealed:

“I want to diversify, so I have scripted content and some reality content that’s great. From travel, to crazy families, to a show in Ghana which is basically like an ‘African Idol.’ The first season’s going to be in Ghana, then we’re going to South Africa to Kenya to Uganda. So basically, we’re making an ‘African Idol’ like ‘American Idol.’

And I’m producing a show at Bounce TV with my brother [Bounce TV president] Ryan Glover along with Russ Parr and Swirl Films. We’re producing a show that’s basically the Gospel ‘Empire.’ It’s going to be full of drama and great music. Kim Burrell is executive music producer. So I have a billion things going on, but it’s great. I love working to push the industry forward. I love to just be a part of this thing, and we’re making it happen.”

also Gospel singer Kim Burrell will be apart of the project.
