The half-hour comedy series, set in the world of electronic music, is due to be screened on HBO
Calvin Harris and Irvine Welsh are to collaborate on new TV series Higher, a half-hour comedy series to be screened on HBO (as first reported by Deadline). The series will be 'set in the world of electronic music', and will count Jay Z and Will & Jada Pinkett Smith among its executive producers.
Harris' role in the development of the show is as yet unspecified, but we can at least speculate he'll have some hand in creating the soundtrack. There's also reason to assume that there will be a smidgen of narcotics weaved amongst the show's themes, given Welsh's involvement, the clubbing milieu and that giveaway title.
