West To Star In New Tv Show

KANYE WEST and BORAT director LARRY CHARLES have teamed up to develop a new series for US cable TV network HBO. The as-yet-untitled project will focus on a day in the Grammy Award-winning rapper's life. Charles is a longtime producer and director of TV series CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM and was also executive producer of ENTOURAGE for its first two seasons. His most recent film BORAT: CULTURAL LEARNINGS OF AMERICA FOR MAKE BENEFIT GLORIOUS NATION OF KAZAKHSTAN recently earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Musical Or Comedy Motion Picture. Music producer-turned rapper West has released two albums, THE COLLEGE DROPOUT in 2004 and LATE REGISTRATION in 2005, and will serve as executive producer on the project. In March (06), he signed on to produce a feature film inspired by his music. He will also appear in the film, which will show a portrait of the US through the eyes of West and several other filmmakers.
