Modern day renaissance man Jamie Foxx is turning his attention back to television and comedy. Fox has ordered a season of the tentatively titled The Jamie Foxx Project, a half hour sketch comedy show. In addition to that, Foxx is executive producing Night Tales, a horror show based on BET’s Nite Tales: The Movie.
Foxx’s No-Brainer Productions is producing 26 episodes of the series, which will not be limited to TV but will also be distributed via comic books and the Internet. Stacy Dash and Denise Richards will act as hosts for the show.
Clifford “Method Man” Smith has agreed to join the show as well. The Staten Island emcee has had regular work over the years, from his short lived Method & Red to recurring roles on The Wire and CSI.
