Stan Takes a Run at Race in Hollywood With White Famous

August 8, 2017
"Don't you wanna be so famous that you transcend colour?"

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.
