Kanye West Keeps It Real

The show will centre on West's daily life as a hugely successful rapper and producer and West is helping develop the show with genius producers Larry Charles andf Rick Rubin.

It's fictional, and loosely based on my life."

Charles previous' exec produced credits include HBO's hit series Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld and more recently the international hit movie Borat.
