Comedian and SNL alum Jay Pharaoh is teaming up with Oscar award winning actor/comedian Jaime Foxx for a new series on Showtime called White Famous.
The show centers around Pharaoh’s character who is an underground comedian performing in seedy nightclubs and hole in the wall bars, but then he is picked to star in a mega movie alongside Jaime Foxx. Pharaoh struggles with trying to keep it real versus adapting to the mainstream world of Hollywood.
White Famous was created by Jaime Foxx because he went through some of theses experiences on the show while trying to make a name for himself in Hollywood. White Famous is set to premiere Oct.15th at 10 pm on Showtime.
