Kanye West is headed to the small screen. Well, a version of him is, at least.
The musician is working with Showtime on ‘Omniverse’, which is being described as “a limited half-hour anthology series examining the many doors of perception. Season One explores the Ego through an alternate reality Kanye West.”
Jaden Smith is attached to star as a younger, alternate-reality version of West.
Lee Sung Jin will write the script and serve as executive producer. He is currently a co-executive producer on the Amazon series ‘Undone’ and has worked on Netflix’s ‘Tuca & Bertie’ and HBO’s ‘Silicon Valley’.
West and Scooter Braun will also executive produce, with James Shin and Scott Manson of SB Projects, and Smith and Miguel Melendez of Westbrook Studios.
