Kanye West is developing an anthology series on Showtime titled Omniverse that, as Buzzfeed describes as "examining the many doors of perception."

The limited half-hour series will star Will Smith's son Jaden as a younger version of West. The storyline for the show is not clear but Showtime says the first season will delve into "the Ego through an alternate reality Kanye West,"

The pilot episode was directed by comedy team and filmmakers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, titled "Singularity". 

No word yet as to when Showtime will premiere the series.
