Wait for it: An EDM drama called The Drop is in development at the CW, EW has confirmed.

The Drop comes from former Nashville executive producer R.J. Cutler and DJ Steve Angello. He will serve as the executive music producer.

The story is set in the intense, crazed world of electronic dance music in Miami, where one of the world’s top DJs finds an up-and-coming African-American DJ to mentor. Kyle Jarrow is writing the script and will also executive produce.

Angello, a member of the now broken-up EDM trio Swedish House Mafia has his next album, Wild Youth, is due later this year.
