HBO is developing a series from Larry Charles that will star rapper Kanye West, sources said.

The as-yet-untitled project is said to focus on a day in what is described as the crazy, hectic life of the Grammy-winning artist.

The project is from executive producer/director Charles; sources said the other executive producers will be record producer/label executive Rick Rubin; G Roberson, who is West's manager; and West.

HBO declined comment.

West, a music producer-turned-rapper, has released two albums -- 2004's "The College Dropout" and 2005's "Late Registration" -- that became multiplatinum hits and earned him six Grammys.

In March, West teamed with Anonymous Content and New Line Cinema to produce a feature film inspired by his music (HR 3/15). West also will appear in the film, which will create a multiperspective portrait of the U.S. as seen through the eyes of West and several filmmakers.

He is repped by WMA and Roberson.

Charles is a longtime executive producer and director of "Curb Your Enthusiasm", for which he has received multiple DGA Award and Emmy nominations.
