Jamie Foxx Lands Showtime Series
Jamie Foxx is teaming up with Showtime to star in a show called “White Famous.”
Jamie said, “I came up from standup comedy, so to be able to share that aspect of my life on screen with a project like ‘White Famous’ is incredibly exciting. We couldn’t have found better partners than SHOWTIME, Lionsgate and Tom Kapinos to tell this story in the best possible way.”
Tom Kapinos, the show’s creator who’s previously worked with showtime on “Californication,” said, “They say you can’t go home again, but I’m thrilled to be back at SHOWTIME, where I’m equally jazzed to be working with the brilliant Jamie Foxx on the creation of another wickedly profane TV antihero.” Source and Image
