Jay Z and Will Smith to Produce HBO Comedy Series
The show, which is currently unnamed, will be written by ‘Trainspotting’ author Irvine Welsh and will be set in the electronic music world. While Jay and Will are not as familiar with this world as Harris is, the three will be collaborating on the project as executive producers with their production companies — Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment and Jay’s Marcy Media, according to Deadline.com.
This isn’t the first time Jay Z and Smith have worked together on the producing end. The two are working on the remake of ‘Annie,’ which stars Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz. The Boombox previously reported that there were talks about Willow Smith taking the the title role, but Quvenzhané Wallis will star as Annie.
