Kanye West is developing a Showtime anthology in which Jaden Smith would play a young Kanye West in an alternate reality.
Ominverse is described as a limited half-hour anthology series “examining the many doors of perception.” The first season, the one for which a pilot script has been commissioned, would explore ego through the alternative reality of West.
From West, Scooter Braun’s SB Projects, Westbrook Studios and writer Lee Sung Jin, it would be the first anthology to hit Showtime in some years.
For all of West’s dabbling in media and culture, this would also be the first TV series to his credit. He’ll serve as executive producer alongside Braun, Jin, Smith, James Shin, Scott Manson and Miguel Melendez.
No other details, aside from the cryptic logline, were immediately available.
The script comes from Jin, whose comedy credits include Silicon Valley, Netflix newcomer Tuca & Bertie and upcoming Amazon animated series Undone. Source: HR
