Jamie Foxx , the Academy Award-winning actor and comedian is returning to his roots. Foxx was one of the breakout stars of one of the most memorable sketch comedy series of all time, In Living Color, a show that introduced the world not only to Foxx, but Jim Carey, David Alan Grier, Tommy Davidson, and the Wayans family.
Now Jamie Foxx has one again teamed up with the FOX network as an executive producer of a half-hour sketch comedy series. The show has yet to be named but the plan is currently to debut this upcoming season in primetime. Comedian Affion Crockett (The Boondocks), will also serve as one of the show’s producers and as one of its stars.
Like In Living Color, the plan is to showcase up-and-coming comedic talent and then put them next to big Hollywood guest stars, which we’re assuming will come from Foxx’s large address book.
