Jaden Smith To Play Kanye West In Upcoming Showtime Series

Jaden Smith will portray an alternate reality version of Kanye West in Omniverse, a new series in development at Showtime. The Yeezy-backed show is a limited half-hour anthology, according to Deadline.

Omniverse is described as a series “examining the many doors of perception.” The show’s first season, if commissioned, aims to explore ego through an alternate reality of Kanye.

The G.O.O.D. Music founder will produce the series along with Smith, writer Lee Sung Jin, Scooter Braun’s SB Projects and Westbrook Studios. Jin, whose writing credits include HBO’s Silicon Valley and Netflix’s Tuca & Bertie, is penning the pilot’s script.

“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,” Jin said in a press statement. “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.”
