Will & Jada Pinkett Smith Team Up w/ Jay-Z To Produce HBO Comedy Starring DJ Calvin Harris


Will & Jada Pinkett-Smith are bringing their production talents back to the small screen — along with the help of Jay Z.

They’re currently working on an HBO comedy series starring DJ Calvin Harris which will be centered around the world of electronic music.

To be titled Higher, the project will be scripted by Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting), although specific story details are underwraps for now.

The 30-year-old Calvin Harris (birth name, Adam Richard Wiles) holds the record for the most top ten hits from one studio album on the UK Singles Chart, with nine hits. And according to Forbes, Harris was the highest paid DJ of 2013, grossing an estimated $46 million.

So I guess he’s kind of a big deal… even though I’d never heard of him until today.

The producer trio (Will, Jada, Jay-Z) previously teamed up to help push Shola Lynch’s Free Angela feature documentary, as well as the Fela! musical on Broadway, by signing up as executive producers.

It sounds interesting enough. We can’t wait to hear more about it.
