Levine, the director of The Night Before and creator of Rush, will direct the pilot named after the popular Nas hit, which borrows its melody from Eurythmics’ 80s classic “Sweet Dreams”.
Nas was recently involved with the creation and production of the Netflix series The Get Down, which is directed by Baz Luhrmann.
