'Succession To The Empire': The Roys And Lyons Collide In This Mash-Up Of Television's Most Powerful Media Families

With the Season 2 finale of HBO's Succession still on our minds and the final season of Empire on Fox upon us, what better way to commemorate this moment than with this mash-up of television's most powerful media families.

Watch below as the Roys and The Lyons collide in our latest Shadow And Act mash-up:

Succession just wrapped its sophomore season, following the Roy family as they struggle to retain control of their empire, and while the future looks increasingly uncertain, it is the past that threatens to ultimately destroy them. The show stars Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Hiam Abbass, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Nicholas Braun, Matthew Macfadyen, Peter Friedman, Rob Yang, J. Smith Cameron, Dagmara Dominczyk and Arian Moayed.

Empire revolves around the Lyon family and their media company, Empire Entertainment. The founder, Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), is the king of hip hop, but his company and reign are constantly threatened by his family, including his ex-wife, Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson), his sons, Jamal (Jussie Smollett), Hakeem (Bryshere “Yazz” Gray) and Andre (Trai Byers); and a volatile and competitive music industry. Empire also stars Andre Royo as Thurston "Thirsty" Rawlings, Gabourey Sidibe as Becky, Serayah as Tiana and Ta'Rhonda Jones as Porsha.
