Foxx On Fox: ‘Jaime Fox Project’ Sketch Comedy Series Gets Picked Up By Fox Network


Fox announced  that it ordered the Jamie Fox Project, a half-hour sketch comedy series from Executive Producer Jamie Foxx that’ll debut in prime time sometime during the 2010-11 season. Affion Crockett (The Boondocks) will star in and also serve as a producer in the comedy, which the network says will offer a “fresh take on pop culture, including spoofs of movie trailers, commercials, TV shows, and music videos.” The yet-to-be-named cast will include up-and-coming comedians.

Fox also promises that some of the “biggest names in Hollywood” will stop by and participate in the show.

“Jamie’s Foxx’s brilliance first shined on Fox, so it’s fantastic to welcome him back to the network,” said Kevin Reilly, Fox’s entertainment president, in a statement. “Jamie is an undeniable comedy powerhouse both as a performer and a producer, and teamed with the outrageous next-generation comedy of Affion Crockett, we look forward to the next wave of sketch comedy on Fox.”

Foxx was a co-star in Fox’s In Living Color from 1991-1994
