So sometime last year we heard about Jay and Will teaming up to form a film company and produce the Annie remake. Well this year, add Dj Calvin Harris to the mix, the trio is working on a comedy series for HBO.
According to HitFix:
U.K. DJ Calvin Harris who's worked on hits by Rihanna and Ellie Goulding is collaborating with Will Smith and Jay Z for the comedy series "Higher," which HBO will develop.... plot details are scarce, the half-hour series will take place in the world of electronic music, which is somewhat familiar to Harris.
Smith will executive produce along with his Overbrook partners James Lassiter, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Miguel Melendez, along with Three Six Zero Group’s Mark Gillespie and Dean Wilson. Jay Z and his Marcy Media partners Jay Brown, and Tyran Smith are also serving as exec producers.
