Will Smith, Jay-Z And HBO Are Making A Comedy Show
Acting veteran Will Smith is combining with legendary rapper Jay-Z and music producer Calvin Harris to develop a fictional half-hour comedy for HBO. The trio will work as executive producers for the show, currently titled Higher, which will be set in the world of electronic music (Spin). Though Will Smith and Jay-Z may seem like an unusual combination, the two have been working together developing the Annie remix that will feature Quvenzhané Wallis. Though we have yet to see a finished production from the two of them, they must feel confident in their partnership to embark on a new project before one is finished. The show will be written by Irvine Welsh, author of Trainspotting, a 1993 novel that became a 1996 film. More details to come.
