Kanye West + Jaden Smith is bound to be interesting if nothing else, given each of their... alternative views.

Kanye's in the process of developing a new TV show anthology about himself, titled 'Omniverse', with Jaden Smith to play a young Kanye. 

The show's said to focus on "examining the many doors of perception", with the pilot for the first season exploring "ego through the alternative reality of West."

'Omniverse' is being written by Lee Sung Jin, who also worked on 'Silicon Valley', saying: "I’m honored 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. 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."

Kanye will executive produce the series, alongside Scooter Braun, Jin, Smith, James Shin, Scott Manson and Miguel Melendez, so their are a lot of hands on deck.

No details on when we'll get a glimpse at the series yet - watch this space.
