According to news reports, Steve Angello is taking the reigns as an executive music producer for a new EDM drama developed by The CW and CBS TV Studios.

The Drop, set in the EDM hub of Miami's nonstop nightlife scene, will tell the story of a DJ on the decline who is reinvigorated by an unlikely protégé, a female African-American. The DJ finds more than inspiration in his new protégé, as she grapples with the adversities that come with being a female and African-American in the industry.

CW and CBS TV Studios last stab at a music drama came in the form of the Tiësto’s "Your Shot USA", an American Idol-style reality series and DJ competition. This time around the network is bringing musician Kyle Jarrow to write the script and Nashville executive producer R.J. Cutler to direct.

No other details have yet to be released, but we can at least be confident that the drama's soundtrack will be in good hands with former Swedish House Mafia member and EDM mainstay Steve Agello.
