*Jamie Foxx is getting back to his roots in comedy with a new Fox network series tentatively titled “The Jamie Foxx Project.”

Fox TV Studios and producers Eric and Kim Tannenbaum were behind a sketch comedy pilot for Fox this past development cycle.

Although some things are bound to change, rising sketch comedian/actor Affion Crockett (below), who co-starred in the pilot, will star on the series and produce.

The “Foxx Project” is said to be along the same lines of Foxx’s previous Fox show, “In Living Color,” the vehicle that boosted him to fame.
