Jamie Foxx to Write & Direct New Syfy Horror Anthology Series


Between the highly successful release of “Django Unchained” and the forthcoming summer release of Roland Emmerich’s “White House Down” actor Jamie Foxx has been spending his time wreaking destruction as a new villain Electro on the set of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” The latest news, however, is that Foxx is putting together a project for the small screen over the summer. Foxx has signed a deal to create a five-episode horror anthology TV series for Syfy, which will debut during the channel’s “31 Days of Halloween” programming in October. Foxx will write, direct and produce the show, and has also hinted that he might star in an episode or two as well.
He says “This is a project that I’ve wanted to do for a long time and I’m so happy to see it come to life. Get ready to lose it when some special friends and I bring the scares this October, and who knows… maybe I’ll make a guest appearance or two along the way!” Foxx didn’t mention who his ‘special friends” are but writers attached to the show include Michael Ferris (Terminator Salvation), Jeff Stilson (The Daily Show with John Stewart) and John Pogue (Army Wives).
