Kanye West is currently developing a limited half-hour anthology series for Showtime, in collaboration with Scooter Braun’s SB Projects, Westbrook Studios and writer Lee Sung Jin.
Omniverse will star Jaden Smith, who will also serve as an executive producer. The series will examine the many doors of perception. Season One explores the Ego through an alternate reality version of West, played by Smith, according to Deadline.
“I’m honored and thrilled to be collaborating with everyone involved to present an alternate world through the eyes of a young man somewhere in the multiverse who happens to also be a Kanye West,” said writer Sung Jin. “Omniverse is not set in our world nor about our world’s Kanye West as we aim to add a new spin on alternate realities, consciousness, and push the limits of half hour narrative.”
