No one man should have all that power.

In a very on-brand move, Kanye West is set to executive produce a show about himself starring Jaden Smith.

However, unlike Keeping Up with the Kardashians (which Kanye occasionally appears on) the show won’t focus on reality. Instead, Jaden Smith will play a young, ‘alternate reality’ Kanye.

According to Deadline, the show (titled Omniverse) will be a ‘limited half-hour anthology series examining the many doors of perception’. The first season will apparently explore the concept of ‘ego’ through the alternate reality Kanye West.

Writer Lee Sung Jin is also onboard, alongside Westbrook Studios and SB Projects.

“I’m honoured and thrilled to be collaborating with everyone involved to present an alternate world through the eyes of a young man somewhere in the multiverse who happens to also be a Kanye West,” Lee told Deadline.

“Omniverse is not set in our world nor about our world’s Kanye West as we aim to add a new spin on alternate realities, consciousness, and push the limits of half-hour narrative.”

There’s no word on a release date yet, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled.
