Jay Z’s TIDAL to Produce Comedy Series

If you think Jay’z Tidal is only about music, think again. The mogul is expanding his brand to include original programming, and he’s beginning with the launch of a new comedy series.

The company has just added two new shows to its lineup. One is titled No Small Talk, a profile on up-and-coming comedians that will debut on Nov. 3.

Show number two is Money & Violence, which is in its second season. It is a Brooklyn-based, street life drama set to premiere fresh episodes in January.
