Fox Unveils Scaled-Down Plans for New Jamie Foxx Sketch Comedy Series

Apr 26, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Fox’s upcoming sketch comedy series from Jamie Foxx and Affion Crockett will premiere later than previously thought, with fewer episodes initially ordered than previously thought, Deadline.com reports.

The show is now set to debut Sunday, Aug. 14, and the initial order is for six episodes, not 12.

The show’s title has also been revealed: “In the Flow With Affion Crockett.” That means the "In Living Color"-style comedy hour will rest largely on Crockett’s shoulders, with Foxx executive producing and dropping in to perform on occasion. Crockett will be writer and producer, along with his starring role.

Previous reports that the show would get a preview March 31 after "American Idol," with a launch on June 9, proved to be premature.

Slated to appear as guests are Snoop Dogg, Russell Simmons, Chris Brown, Michael Strahan, JB Smoove, David Koechner and Harry Shum Jr., among others.
