Jamie Foxx is heading back to Netflix to star in and produce a new comedy series, inspired by Foxx’s relationship with his daughter Corinne, who is also serving as producer. The series is titled Dad Stop Embarrassing Me, and will costar Foxx’s fellow In Living Color alum David Alan Grier and teenage actress Kyla-Drew. Bentley Kyle Evans, who co-created Foxx’s 1990s WB sitcom, will serve as showrunner.
Dad Stop Embarrassing Me will mark Foxx’s first regular role on a scripted series since The Jamie Foxx Show‘s conclusion in 2001. He currently hosts the Fox game show Beat Shazam. Foxx will next be seen — or rather, heard — as the main character in Pixar’s upcoming film Soul, currently scheduled for a November release.
