Their new remake film Annie won’t hit theaters until December, but Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith and Jay Z are already on to their next project together as producing partners!

This time, they’re ready to take on the world of television, and have inked a deal at HBO, a half hour comedy that will star Scottish DJ and record producer Calvin Harris, and will be set in the world of electronic music.

It’s tentatively titled as Higher, it will be scripted by Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting), and many details are still underwraps.

Sounds like Calvin is ready to tackle another medium — and why not? He’s mastered so much in music. Forbes lists him as the highest paid DJ of 2013, collecting a whopping $46 million gross. Nice! And he’s made music with Rihanna and Ne-Yo — some of Rihanna’s biggest tracks — like We Found Love — have featured the DJ.
