Do you remember when Jamie Foxx was a regular on “In Living Color”? The show ran on the Fox Network in the early nineties and produced some huge stars such as Foxx, Jim Carrey, and Jennifer Lopez. Now, the Oscar winner is returning to his comedic roots with a new sketch series.
The show is tentatively called “The Jamie Foxx Project” and will be produced by Foxx along with star Affion Crockett. Crockett previously appeared on MTV’s improv hit, “Wildin’ Out” with Nick Cannon. This show will take on “pop culture, spoofing movie trailers, commercials, TV shows, music videos and celebrities, with a diverse cast of young new comedians.”
“The Jamie Foxx Project” will be a midseason replacement, and will be a joint production between the network and Foxx/King Entertainment. Sounds like a good concept, but when was the last time you saw a decent sketch comedy show on the network post-In Living Color? And where will it fit in with their current line up?
The details for the show haven’t been ironed out but I’m hoping the rest of the cast will be revealed fairly soon.
