Jaden Smith could soon be stepping into the Yeezys of Kanye West.

Showtime is currently in development on a limited half-hour anthology series that would star Smith as a young Kanye West, a source familiar with the project tells CNN.

The first season of the show, called "Omniverse," would center on an alternate reality version of West.

The cerebral-sounding crux of the show is not easily explained but would involve the philosophical concepts of perception and Ego.

West and Scooter Braun are set to executive produce, as will Smith through his family's Westbrook Studios.

Lee Sung Jin, currently a co-executive producer on Amazon's "Undone," is set to write.

A great Friday is setting up for northwest Missouri & northeast Kansas after dealing with summer heat & stormy weather this work week. We'll see more sunshine with a few clouds. High temperatures will be much cooler, but pleasant only go up to the upper 70s to lower 80s.
