The hip hop world has "Empire," the country world has "Nashville," and the rock world has several scripted TV shows, but now, EDM is about to get a scripted series also. Swedish House Mafia's Steve Angello is teaming up with Primary Wave Entertainment on a scripted EDM series, on which Steve will serve as executive producer, Variety reports.
According to Variety, the new series will reportedly be centered around "DJ culture in the fast-paced, larger-than-life world of electronic dance music." The show will be prominently featuring Steve's music.
Steve's wife and producing partner Isabel Adrian will also be involved in the production of the show, and her novel Sex, Drugs and The DJ is set to be the foundation of a feature film that Primary Wave will also produce.
Also working on the new series with the Swedish House Mafia producer/DJ is director Gregory Alosio, Cult Collective's Pia Lindstrom, Martin Management’s Sharlene Martin-Ludwig, and Primary Wave Entertainment senior manager Ben Press. (All pictured above)
This isn't the first time Angello got involved in a TV series. In the fall, he announced that CW bought a script for another project of his called "The Drop," which he would also executive produce.
Steve is also preparing to release his brand new album Wild Youth later this month on January 22nd. Sounds like 2016 is off to an amazing start for the producer/DJ!
