Drake is headed back to his roots on the big screen. Variety reports that a new show on HBO called Euphoria will be produced by both Drake and Future the Prince. The series follows a group of high school students as they explore the realms of drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship. While Drake was known early on for his role as an actor on Degrassi, this marks the first time he will have production credits in television. The same goes for Future the Prince, who currently serves as Drake’s DJ and manager.
The show will feature Zendaya playing the lead role as Rue, along with Maude Apatow, Brian “Astro” Bradley, Angus McLoud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer and Sydney Sweeney. Sam Levinson, who wrote HBO’s Wizard of Lies, will be writing all 10 episodes. Stay tuned for updates!
