HBO Plans EDM Comedy Show Starring Calvin Harris

After having already dominated your summer stages and speaker systems for the last few years, ubiquitous British pop icon Calvin Harris will star in HBO’s new TV show about electronic music.

Deadline reports that Harris will star in a half-hour comedy series called “Higher,” written by Irvine Welsh, the mind behind Trainspotting, with input from Harris.

Backing the project are Jay Z’s Marcy Media, along with Will and Jada Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment and the Three Six Zero Group, the electronic music management branch of Jay Z’s Roc Nation.

Apparently Will Smith and Jay-Z are also producing a take on the musical Annie together. Hard-knock life, indeed.
