Actor Jamie Foxx is hoping to make a return to TV with new comedy.

Actor Jamie Foxx is hoping to make a return to TV after bosses at America’s Showtime network ordered a pilot for his new sitcom.

The Oscar winner, 48, is an executive producer on White Famous, a half-hour comedy based on an original idea from Foxx, reported Contactmusic.

The story centres on a young black comedian as he struggles with his rise to stardom.

“I came up from stand-up comedy, so to be able to share that aspect of my life on screen with a project like White Famous is incredibly exciting,” Foxx said in a statement.

The actor, who began his career as a stand-up comedian, hasn’t been a regular on the small screen since his hit The Jamie Foxx Show ended its five season run in 2001. He was also a regular on cult 1990s sketch comedy show In Living Color.
