R&B sensation The Weeknd is transitioning from the stage to the small screen.
The Weeknd is teaming up with the creator of the hit HBO show “Euphoria”, Sam Levinton, on a new series titled “The Idol.” The Weeknd will star in and co-write the show. The series follows a female pop singer who becomes romantically involved with an enigmatic Los Angeles club owner who is also the leader of a secret cult.
This isn’t the first time The Weeknd has ventured into television. The Grammy-winning superstar found himself in the writer’s room of the TBS animated comedy “American Dad” in May 2020, when he co-wrote an episode titled “A Starboy Is Born” alongside American Dad and Robot Chicken writer, Joel Hurwitz.
A release date for the series has not yet been confirmed.
