Drake may be the hottest thing in hip-hop, but he’s not completely ditching his television roots.
The former actor on Degrassi: The Next Generation is developing a TV comedy series called Us and Them to air in Canada, according to a press release.
Produced by The Nightingdale Company, the tongue-in-cheek satire features two best friends trying to find their way in the entertainment industry. Drake’s costar, Mazin Eisadig, is also a Degrassi alum.
Fans will see less of the T. Dot rapper this summer on the Young Money Presents: Americas Most Wanted Music Festival, as a torn ACL is preventing him from performing a full set. Instead, Drizzy will be limited to guest performances on the tour, which also stars Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Soulja Boy, Nikki Minaj and the rest of Young Money.
There is no word on when Us and Them is set to air. –John Kennedy
