The Weeknd is developing a new HBO series alongside Euphoria creator Sam Levinson, as Deadline points out.The Idol will follow a female pop singer who becomes romantically involved with a Los Angeles club owner—who also happens to be a cult leader. The Weeknd is slated to produce, co-write, and star in the drama.

In addition to the Weeknd and Levinson, the show will be co-created by Reza Fahim, who works with the Weeknd as a creative producer. Joseph Epstein will serve as co-writer and showrunner on the project, while Ashley Levinson, Kevin Turen, and Aaron L. Gilbert will co-executive produce alongside Sam Levinson.

This is far from the first time that The Weeknd has found himself on television . In 2020, he appeared as himself in an American Dad episode, titled “A Starboy is Born,” that we also co-wrote. He also played himself on the big screen, in the 2019 film, Uncut Gems.

On the music side of things, The Weeknd recently joined Doja Cat in a video for their first-ever collaboration “You Right.”
