Showtime has ordered the pilot for a series co-created by Jamie Foxx that looks like it might be semiautobiographical — centered around a gifted young black stand-up comedian working to find success in the mainstream (or, in other words, to become White Famous, as the show will be called).
“I came up from stand-up comedy, so to be able to share that aspect of my life on screen with a project like White Famous is incredibly exciting,” Foxx told Deadline Hollywood.
The show is the brainchild of Foxx and Tom Kapinos, who created the Showtime series Californication. Foxx will have a recurring role in the series.
