That’s So Sweet! Jamie Foxx Working On Scripted Series Based On Relationship With His Daughter
Everybody knows how much Jamie Foxx loves his daughter Corrine, especially since she’s been his date for every single award show in recent memory. And we’re all pretty sure the 18-year-old is thoroughly embarrassed by her daddy’s crazy antics every single time they step out together — like when he hit on Kelly Rowland at the Oscars. Well, in a genius move, Jamie Foxx and TNT have decided to turn the pair’s father-daughter relationship into a new scripted series for the network.
Shadow and Act reported the news, saying the new show will be titled “Dad, Stop Embarrassing Me,” and will follow this premise:
Every teenager is embarrassed by his/her parents. But what if your dad decided to descend upon your life in every way? Inspired by Jamie Foxx’s relationship with his 18-year-old daughter, this comedy explores the dynamic between a parent and a child and all the embarrassment that comes with it.
S&A says Jamie Foxx will executive produce and handle scripting along with a couple other people, which means he’ll likely be completely off-screen rather than in front of it as we usually see. And even though the show is only based on Jamie’s relationship with his daughter, knowing that they’re the inspiration for the show I can’t help but wonder who could possibly pull off his part. Any thoughts?
