Another remake to look forward to. Look for Jamie Foxx with his new show on Netflix. Series to air in April.
Foxx stars as Brian Dixon, a single, successful business owner who is getting used to being a full-time dad to his teen daughter Sasha (played by Kyla-Drew, No Good Nick). Brian leans on his own father (and Foxx’s In Living Color castmate David Alan Grier) and sister (Porscha Coleman, Good Girls) for help.
In addition to Dixon, Foxx also plays characters known as Rev. Sweet Tee, Cadillac Calvin and Rusty in the multi-cam series. (You’ll get a good look at them — particularly the holy man — throughout the two-minute preview.)
Foxx and his daughter, Corinne Foxx — whose relationship with her dad was part of the inspiration for the series — will serve as executive producers. Bentley Kyle Evans (The Jamie Foxx Show) will be showrunner. Ken Whittingham (black-ish) will direct.
The series starts streaming on Wednesday, April 14.
