Kanye West is coming to TV. Well, kind of. According to The Hollywood Reporter, West is currently developing a Showtime anthology series titled Ominverse, in which Jaden Smith will play a younger version of The Graduation star in an alternate reality.

For its first season, the 30-minute series will be “examining the many doors of perception" and explore ego through the alternative reality of West. The show will not only be helmed by Yeezy -- who'll serve as its executive producer -- but also Scooter Braun’s SB Projects, Westbrook Studios and writer Lee Sung Jin. The script was handled by Jin, whose resume boasts comedy-driven shows such as Silicon Valley, Netflix's Tuca & Bertie and Amazon's forthcoming animated series Undone.

Along with West, Smith will also play the role of executive producer. No other details about the show were available at press time.
