Jamie Foxx Lands New Comedy Series

Published

on

It looks like Jamie Foxx is making a return to the small screen.

The Oscar -winning actor has just inked a deal with TBS to produce a scripted series titled “Dad, Stop Embarrassing Me!

According to the network, the show is loosely based on Jamie’s relationship with his 18-year-old daughter Corrine. Every teenager is embarrassed by his/her parents,” explained a rep at the recent Turner Upfronts. “But what if your dad decided to descend upon your life in every way? Inspired by Jamie Foxx’s relationship with his 18-year-old daughter, this comedy explores the dynamic between a parent and a child and all the embarrassment that comes with it.”

No word on if Foxx or his daughter Corrine will actually star in the show.

Foxx is currently filming The Amazing Spider Man 2, and also just recently inked a deal with the SyFy channel to produce a 5-part horror series which will begin airing in October.

Go Jamie! Will you be watching?

Sorry Folks! Martin Lawrence Doesn’t Think ‘Bad Boys 3’ Will Happen

Martin Lawrence has pretty much lost hope in plans for another Bad Boys film, and for good reason. Over the last few months, the long-gestating third installment has lost it’s director and release date.

Now according to Lawrence it may have even lost one of it’s boys – co-star Will Smith. “I don’t think we’re going to get one, not the way everything’s turning out,” Lawrence told EW. “Will is off doing another movie, and I don’t think it’s going to happen.”

Just last December Smith told Jimmy Kimmel that Bad Boys 3 aka Bad Boys For Life,  was “very, very, very close” to beginning production. He also added of Lawrence, “I love that dude. That’s among the best times I’ve ever had making movies. So I’m looking forward to it.”

As for Lawrence, he’s ready if the project can get off life support. “I’m there, I’m ready right now,” said Lawrence. “If they wanted to do it, I’m ready, but I don’t have control of that. That’s the studio’s decision.”

Back in March, writer/director Joe Carnahan departed from the Sony Pictures’ flick after months of delays. And director Micheal Bay, who helmed both Bad Boys and Bad Boys II declined to return after too many set-backs. “Pretty soon its going to called Bad Old Boys because they can’t get it together with doing a script,” he told HipHollywood back in 2016. “Thats why I backed out of the process.”
