The Weeknd to Co-Create and Star in Upcoming HBO Series ‘The Idol’

    The Weeknd will star in an upcoming HBO series called The Idol, which follows a female pop singer who falls in love with an L.A. club owner – who also happens to lead a secret cult. The singer is slated to co-write and a co-executive produce the series alongside Reza Fahim and Euphoria creator Sam Levinson, as Variety reports. Joseph Epstein will serve as co-writer and showrunner on the series, while Mary Laws, who has written for Succession and Preacher, will craft the story.

    The Weeknd recently joined Doja Cat in a video for their recent collaboration ‘You Right’.
