According to The Hollywood Reporter and Variety reports, young mogul, actor, and musical-artist, Jaden Smith will be playing a young alternate reality version of Kanye West in an upcoming Showtime series titled, Omniverse.
The thirty-minute anthology series will explore the many doors of perception. Kanye West, Jaden Smith, Scooter Braun, and writer Lee Sung Jin are said to be the executive producers of the show.
“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. 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.”
