Fresh off an action-packed turn in Netflix’s Project Power, Oscar winner Jamie Foxx will team with the streaming juggernaut one more time. According to Variety, Foxx will star in and produce a father-daughter comedy series titled Dad Stop Embarrassing Me in the works at Netflix.
The series will reportedly take inspiration from Foxx’s relationship with his daughter, actress and model Corinne Foxx. Foxx will be joined in the multi-camera series by Kyla-Drew (The Good Doctor) who will play a fictionalized version of Corinne. Moreover, comedy legend David Alan Grier joins the show’s cast as well. Porscha Coleman (Ballers), Jonathan Kite (Black Dynamite: The Animated Series), Heather Hemmens (Roswell: New Mexico), and Valente Rodriguez (The George Lopez Show) will also appear in the series.
The upcoming series will see Foxx return to scripted TV in a starring role for the first time since his sitcom The Jamie Foxx Show aired its final episode in 2001. Coincidentally, Dad Stop Embarrassing Me will reunite Foxx with the creator of his self-titled sitcom Bentley Kyle Evans, who is on-board as showrunner. Additionally, Ken Whittingham (Modern Family) will direct every episode of its first season.
Last year, Foxx turned in an award-worthy performance alongside Michael B. Jordan in Just Mercy. Additionally, the Ray star will play the titular role in Todd McFarlane’s upcoming Spawn reboot. Up next, the actor will voice the main character in Pixar’s latest film Soul. Furthermore, Foxx’s upcoming Mike Tyson biopic is actively in development as well.
