The Jamie Foxx produced “White Famous” premieres October 15th at 10PM on Showtime. I watched the pilot episode and think I may have laughed once. Something seems off to me. Nonetheless, I wish them well with the show. “I’m rooting for everyone black”. (In my Issa Rae voice.)
Saturday Night Live alum Jay Pharoah stars as Floyd Mooney, a young African-American comedian whose star is on the rise. But the path to stardom is a minefield that Floyd must navigate to maintain his credibility while attempting to become “white famous.” Executive produced by Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx and based on his experiences, this hilarious comedy series is also executive produced by Tom Kapinos, creator of Californication.
