This looks pretty cool. Jay Pharoah (SNL) is an up and coming African-American comedian trying to become “white famous” in the fraught battleground that is Hollywood, while Jamie Foxx is, well, Jamie Foxx, albeit in a dress at least part of the time. Foxx is also EPing this one, which is loosely based on his own experiences, so it’s kind of vibing like a not-crap Entourage. Tom Kapinos, creator of Californication., is also on board, which should give it some edge.
Thanks to their deal with Showtime, Stan is fast-tracking this one from the US, so look forward to checking out White Famous from October 16.
