Jamie Foxx stars in Netflix’s Dad Stop Embarrassing Me
Staff Reporter | On 02, Sep 2020
Jamie Foxx will star in Dad Stop Embarrassing Me, a new Netflix series inspired by his relationship with his daughter.
The multi-camera comedy will take its cues from the actor’s bond with Corinne Fox, with Foxx taking the lead role as the embarrassing dad. Corinne, meanwhile, will produce the series alongside Foxx and Alex Avant.
In front of the camera, Foxx will be joined by David Alan Grier and Kyla-Drew. Behind the camera, Bentley Kyle Evans (Martin) serves as showrunner.
This is not the first time that Foxx and Corinne have collaborated on a project, with the Fox competition Beat Shazam hosted by the actor and DJ-ed by his daughter. It also marks something of a follow-up to The Jamie Foxx Show, which the actor co-created with Evans and marked his last TV starring role.
While Foxx has been away from scripted TV for a couple of decades, he’s no stranger to Netflix, having recently starred in the streaming giant’s superhero blockbuster Project Power.
