Will Smith’s production company Overbrook Entertainment is currently developing two new TV shows. According to Deadline, the actor’s company are producing Kingpin for HBO’s sister channel Cinemax and Watchlist for Fox TV. Smith is teaming up with writer Chad St. John (Ronin), who is set to executive produce both shows with his wife Viruna Arend and co-founder of Overbrook Entertainment James Lassiter.

Kingpin centres on a crafty and careful mid-level drug trafficker trying to get out of the business. He is blackmailed back into it by a dirty DEA agent — who’s really a dirty CIA agent, because the agency can no longer work with murderous cartels — that plans to make the trafficker a puppet kingpin. Watchlist is about two ex-clandestine Special Ops teammates who sacrifice their normal lives to come to the rescue of a third former teammate who is framed by a powerful CIA faction for a political assassination. »
