Showtime's White Famous — Trailer


added: Mon, Aug 7th '17

From executive producer Jamie Foxx and Tom Kapinos, the creator of "Californication," comes "White Famous," a new Showtime comedy series about a rising African-American comedian who is trying to avoid the typical pitfalls of being a mainstream star.

Former SNL cast member Jay Pharoah stars in the new cable series, which is drawing on Jamie Foxx's own experiences during his early years as a young stand-up comic who, at the time, was wrestling with the idea of becoming a major film star.

Filmmaker Tim Story (Ride Along, Barbershop, Think Like a Man) directs the pilot episode and also executive produces the ten-episode comedy, which also stars Utkarsh Ambudkar (The Mindy Project), Cleopatra Coleman (The Last Man on Earth), Stephen Tobolowsky (Silicon Valley), Jacob Ming-Trent (Feed the Beast), and Steve Zissis (Togetherness) with a special appearance from Jamie Foxx playing a heightened version of himself.

"White Famous" is due to premiere on Sunday, October 15th on Showtime. Watch the newly-released trailer, above.

Jay Pharoah stars as Floyd Mooney, an African-American comedian whose star is on the rise. But the path to stardom is a minefield that Floyd must navigate to maintain his credibility while trying to become "white famous."
