JADEN SMITH IS KANYE WEST-WHAT?
SMITH WILL PLAY WEST IN A TV SHOW ABOUT WEST’S EGO
Kanye West has transcended music through his various ventures. He appears in Keeping Up With the Kardashians, started his own fashion line, tried to make a video game and of course has the sneaker line-Yeezys. For a man who’s bag of concert air can sell for thousands, what’s next? A TV show about him, produced by him; that explains the psychology of his mind.
West’s new show is called Omniverse and will star Jaden Smith, with Smith playing a version of Kanye West from an alternate reality. Writer Lee Sung Jin (Silicon Valley) had the following to say about Omniverse:
“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.”
Omniverse is slated to be a multi-season anthology series that calls for “examining the many doors of perception.” The first season will revolve around Kanye and “explore ego through the alternative reality of West”. What that exactly means is not listed, but Kanye has acted as if he lives in a different reality from us before. Jaden Smith has also shown to not be from our Earth a few times as well.
The release date hasn’t been announced, but it will air on the Showtime network.
