Is HBO Working On A Scripted EDM Show?

by Festival July 10, 2014

HBO is gearing up to create a show about the rise of an EDM DJ.  It’s said to be a mix of “Entourage” and “Project X”. Does this mean that the EDM culture is becoming too mainstream?   For some, EDM means dancing in the sun for three days in a row. Maybe even indulging in all kinds of hedonistic extras among a crowd of 200,000 people. For others, EDM can be a very irritating word that just commercializes house music.

Irvine Welsh, a co-writer of the show told inthemix recently “We’ve been working on stuff and trying to get something together”. It’s a comedy about the rise of a DJ through the world of electronic dance music, from humble origins to becoming a superstar DJ. The idea is to make it very character driven as well – you’ve got [touchstones] like Human Traffic and Project X and that kind of territory, and Entourage is another one too, you know, about the people that are around them.” If you don’t know who Irvin Welsh is, he’s a Scottish writer behind many drug-lit books, including TrainspottingGlue, and a short story collection called Ecstacy. He has also dabbled in the electronic dance scene since the 90’s. 

There are a lot of major celebrities and music artists being rumored and  attached to this show like Will and Jada Pinkett and Jay-Z. They’ve even reached out to Calvin Harris to come in and produce the music for the show. Hopefully this show won’t turn out to be a big waste of 30 minutes of life that we can never get back and actually be something worth watching but hey we’re talking about HBO here so we’ll wait and see what happens.
