Behind-the-scenes: A tale of three states

Take a look at what went into the making of Empire’s episode on US statehood.

Host Marwan Bishara discusses how we examined the state model “laboratories” of Texas, California and New York to determine if one state could point the way forward for the future of the US.

In this month’s episode, Empire digs into the question of whether any of the three states would inspire the country to emulate their own compelling examples. 

Empire can be seen from the last Sunday of every month at 2000GMT, and is re-aired during the following week at these times GMT: Monday: 1200GMT; Tuesday: 0100GMT; Wednesday: 0600GMT.
