Calvin Harris Developing Electronic Music Series for HBO

Calvin Harris is teaming up with Jay-Z and Will Smith on Higher

Calvin Harris is following up his wildly successful 2013 with a project that might be his biggest to date. Harris is teaming up with Jay-Z and Will Smith on Higher, which is being described as a half-hour comedy series set in the electronic music world. Higher is currently in the development stages at HBO, and Irvine Welsh, the writer of Trainspotting, is assisting Harris on the show's development. Jay-Z is associated with the project through his Marcy Media company, and Smith is connected through his Overbrook Entertainment venture. Three Six Zero, Harris' management group, is also involved with Higher.

Beyond the facts above, not much else is known about Higher. However, with HBO's impressive track record and the big names involved with the project, Higher has the potential to be very successful.
