He says it's not a reality show....I wonder what kind of show it's going to be? The behind the scenes of a tour has been done by everyone and their mother (Jay-Z, Snoop, etc). Oh well, we will see how far it goes.Â Check out the news from allhiphop.com.
Kanye West has confirmed that he is working with Borat director Larry Charles and producer Rick Rubin to produce an untitled television series for HBO. West clarified the television show's subject matter and denied that is was reality series. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚"I wouldnÃƒâ€šÃ‚'t do something as clichÃ© as a reality show,Ãƒâ€šÃ‚" West said in a statement. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚"At least give me the credit for being more creative than that.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚" West said that he has been developing the pilot for the past two years with Charles and Rubin, who co-founded Def Jam with Russell Simmons in 1984. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚"ItÃƒâ€šÃ‚'s a situational half-hour comedy," West said. "ItÃƒâ€šÃ‚'s fictional, and loosely based on my life." Charles has served as an executive producer for hit HBO shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm and Entourage, while Rubin is well known for his pioneering work with artists like Run-DMC, The Beastie Boys, Johnny Cash, Neil Diamond, Slayer and others. At last year's Prime Time Emmy Awards, HBO earned the most Emmy Awards out of any television network with 26, and West hopes to achieve similar success with his television series. "Maybe this will give me the opportunity to spazz out at the Emmys one day,Ãƒâ€šÃ‚" West quipped.
