Zendaya to Star in New Drake-Produced HBO Drama, ‘Euphoria’

Drake is ready to expand his portfolio beyond acting and rapping, as the “In My Feelings” spitter is set to executive produce the new HBO drama Euphoria.

Similar to his own teenage series, Degrassi, Euphoria follows a group of high school students as they “navigate drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship,” according to Variety. Disney and Spider-Man: Homecoming actress Zendaya is set to star as lead character, Rue. Drake will co-executive produce alongside DJ and manager, Future the Prince.

Other cast members include: Maude Apatow as Lexi; Brian “Astro” Bradley as McKay; Angus Cloud as Fezco; Eric Dane as Cal; Alexa Demie as Maddy; Jacob Elordi as Nate; Barbie Ferreira as Kat; Nika King as Leslie; Storm Reid as Gia; Hunter Schafer as Jules; and Sydney Sweeney as Cassie.

Euphoria is based on the Israeli series of the same name created by Ron Leshem and Daphna Levin. Both will also serve as executive producers on the HBO remake.
