LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Almost two decades after his breakout stint on “In Living Color,” Oscar winner Jamie Foxx is back at Fox with another sketch-comedy show.
The network has ordered a pilot for an untitled project executive produced by Foxx and two of his fellow “Color” writers, “MadTV” creators Fax Bahr and Adam Small, with “Wild ‘N Out” alumnus Affion Crockett attached as one of the stars.

The pilot is the result of merging two projects. Foxx wanted to do a sketch-comedy series with an urban twist and paired with Bahr and Small to pitch the idea to Fox.
