Announced on his Instagram on June 30, The Weeknd plans on starring and cowriting a show alongside Sam Levinson, the creator of the hit show 'Euphoria', among other writers. The show is currently titled, "The Idol" and will follow a female pop star and an L.A. club owner (Variety). Not much is known other than what is provided by Variety at this point; however, this isn't the first time The Weeknd has made an appearance on hit TV shows.
The Weeknd has also appeared alongside Stan Smith in "American Dad" and Adam Sandler in "Uncut Gems". A potential screenplay was rumored of a while ago and we finally get to see the idea come to fruition. As well as he has dominated the air waves, The Weeknd plans on extending this reach to the silver screen. The show will be aired on HBO, as many special series are.
In the wake of critically-acclaimed After Hours, The Weeknd continues to expand on his star power. Will we see a Michael Jackson type of domination in pop culture from this artist? It is certainly a possibility.
