Thanks to Jamie Foxx, Marvin Gaye’s life story will be told on the small screen. And this project even has the support of Gaye’s family!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Foxx will executive produce a limited series about Marvin Gaye alongside de Passe Jones Entertainment’s Suzanne de Passe and Madison Jones. “I’ve been a huge fan my whole life. His brilliance in music unparalleled,” Foxx tells THR. “Marvin Gaye’s story has always fascinated me.”
There have been many attempts at a Marvin Gaye biopic, but none had ever received the blessing of the family, until now. “This project will be a powerful and definitive telling of Marvin Gaye’s life story,” says the singer’s son Marvin Gaye III, an executive producer on the new project.
Gaye was known for such hits as “What’s Going On,” “Sexual Healing” and “Let’s Get It On.” THR notes, he was one of Motown’s most successful artists before he was fatally shot in 1984 at age 44 by his father following a family dispute in their Los Angeles home.
