You’d think that after releasing a 25-song album Scorpion—which, mind you, currently is the No. 1 in the U.S.—Drake would want to take a break. But instead, the rapper is ready to get back into television, this time as executive producer of HBO’s new, Euphoria.
The coming-of-age drama is an adaptation of an Israeli series of the same name that follows a group of teens who, in the wake of their friend’s murder, try to shave down their emotional calluses with sex, drugs, and other high-consequence alternatives.
No wonder why HBO’s Drama Senior Vice President Francesca Orsci described Euphoria as “Kids meets Trainspotting”!
Spider-Man: Homecoming star Zendaya Coleman will star in the show as the lead, playing a disturbed character named Rue. The rest of the Euphoria cast includes The Last Ship’s Eric Dane, Maude Apatow from Girls, The Handmaid’s Tale star Sydney Sweeney, and Briand “Astro” Bradley from Red Band Society.
Sam Levinson, from HBO’s own Wizard of Lies, is writing all 10 episodes of the series.
And as the newly-released creepy teaser promises, Euphoria is “coming soon”— which could either mean next week (highly unlikely, though), or having waiting to wait a whole new year before its premiere—just like the release of Stranger Things season 3. Oh my, this is so frustrating. Alexa, play Drake’s God’s Plan!
