Jamie Foxx Affion Crockett

A new sketch comedy series executive-produced by Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx is set to premiere on Thursday, June 9 on FOX.

The as yet untitled project will be a fast-paced, half-hour sketch-comedy series executive-produced by Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx and starring rising comedic talent Affion Crockett (The Boondocks, Dance Flick), will air a sneak preview Thursday, March 31 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) following American Idol on FOX. The series will then premiere in its regular time period Thursday, June 9 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

In the vein of FOX’s groundbreaking and network-defining In Living Color, the show will offer a fresh take on pop culture, including spoofs of movie trailers, commercials, TV shows, music videos and celebrities, with a diverse cast made up of the very best new young comedians on the scene today. Additionally, some of the biggest names in Hollywood will be stopping by for a visit. Crockett, whose incisive web shorts have drawn a cult following, will also serve as a producer and writer.
