Electronic Music Comedy in Development at HBO

Will Smith attends the Louis Vuitton Menswear Fall/Winter 2014-2015 Show as part of Paris Fashion Week on January 16, 2014 in Paris, France.

HBO is developing a show about electronic music, with Will Smith and Jay Z serving among the show's many executive producers. Deadline reports that mega D.J. Calvin Harris (you might recognize his work from Rihanna's "We Found Love") is working with Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh on a half-hour comedy "set in the world" of electronic music, though it's not clear yet what the story will be, who will star, who will write the show week-to-week, or just how catchy and surprisingly infectious its theme song will be.
