Marcy & Overbrook: Jay Z, Will & Jada Pinkett Smith to Produce New HBO Series...HIGHER

They've got Fela! and Free Angela under their belt.  And Annie is coming out December 19, 2014, and now Jay's Marcy Media and Will & Jada's Overbrook Entertainment are teaming up again.  

This time the producing trio is partnering with HBO for Higher, a half-hour comedy, starring Roc Nation artist, Scottish DJ and record producer, Calvin Harris.

The comedy will be set in the world of electronic music...a perfect setting for Calvin.  Indiewire reports:  The project will be scripted by Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting), and that specific story details are underwraps for now. The 30-year-old Calvin Harris (birth name, Adam Richard Wiles) holds the record for the most top ten hits from one studio album on the UK Singles Chart, with nine hits. And according to Forbes, Harris was the highest paid DJ of 2013, grossing an estimated $46 million. 


Congrats Jay on another power move.
