The rapper, who currently has the No. 1 album in the country with Scorpion, will serve as executive producer for HBO’s teen drama series “Euphoria” along with Future the Prince, reports Variety.
Based on the 2012 Israeli series the same name, “Euphoria” follows a group high school students as they “navigate drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship.” A24 will produce and Sam Levinson (HBO’s “Wizard Lies”) is writing all 10 episodes.
Zendaya will star in the lead role Rue. The cast also includes Maude Apatow, Brian “Astro” Bradley, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer, and Sydney Sweeney.
HBO ordered a pilot in March. Francesca Orsi, Senior VP HBO Drama Series, previously described the series as “Kids meets Trainspotting, and what might exist when parents don’t exist.”
This is the the first TV producing credits for both Future the Prince and Drake, who previously starred in “Degrassi: The Next Generation.”
