On Showtime’s newest show Omniverse you get two narcissists for the price of one. The half-hour anthology series will “examine the many doors of perception” and will feature (wait for it…) Jaden Smith portraying an alternate reality version of Kanye West. You really can’t make that elevator pitch up but Yeezy did and sold it! While details on Omniverse have been kept on the down-low, we do hear that the first season will delve into “the ego through an alternate reality Kanye West,” according to the network.
West is attached to the project as an executive producer along with Scooter Braun, who manages pop stars like Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. The show’s pilot, titled “Singularity,” was directed by Seth Rogen and his longtime collaborator Evan Goldberg. We know what we’re watching after Game of Thrones. Here’s a GIF gallery of Kanye and Jaden doing Kanye and Jaden things.
