This fall, Jay Pharoah is set to star in his first TV series. White Famous is a new half hour series about an up-and-coming comedian Floyd Mooney, who is looking to make it big in the comedy game. He gets connected with big movers and shakers. We know this because Steven Tobolowsky is outfitted in a Speedo and robe, the official look of a Hollywood mover and shaker. Jamie Foxx is an executive producer of the show and stars as himself mentoring Pharoah’s character. The series is also based on Foxx’s life coming up. Tom Kapinos (Californication) will also executive produce with Foxx.
In the new trailer you can see how Pharoah navigates both his professional and personal life. White Famous premieres on Showtime October 15th at 10pm.
