Jamie Foxx Sells Sketch Comedy Pilot to Fox
In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Fox has purchased an urban-flavored sketch comedy pilot from Jamie Foxx.
The network ordered a pilot for an untitled project to be produced by Foxx and Fax Bahr and Adam Small. They all worked together on In Living Color.
Affion Crockett (Wild 'N Out) is presently attached as one of the stars.
Foxx had been looking to do a sketch-comedy series and teamed with Bahr and Small to pitch the idea to Fox. At the same time, Sony TV-based Tantamount was putting together a sketch-comedy project with Crockett. Fox Entertainment president Kevin Reilly listened to both pitches and then proposed merging the projects.
