Looking over 4 different press releases here from the Syfy channel, the network has unveiled a ton of new series for its upcoming season, including development of 2 miniseries based on two of science fiction's greatest novels: Larry Niven's Ringworld (a co-production of MGM Television and Universal Cable Productions (UCP)) and Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End.

They join the previously announced Philip K. Dick's The Man in the High Castle from Ridley Scott's Scott Free Productions, as well as Stephen King's Eyes of the Dragon, from Universal Cable Productions (UCP), and Darkfall, also from UCP and Jim Henson Productions.

But that's just a fraction of what else they announced.

Of most interest to this site is a new scripted series from Jamie Foxx and his Foxxhole Productions

Foxx will write, direct and exec produce a currently-untitled 5-episode horror anthology series, and might also appear in the project, which Syfy will debut during their annual 31 Days Of Halloween programming marathon this October.

The series, which is being compared to TV classics like Tales From The Crypt and The Twilight Zone, will  tell tales of morality with themes like envy and jealousy.

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,” said Jamie Foxx.

Up next for Foxx is Roland Emmerich's thriller White House Down, which he co-stars in with Channing Tatum

In the film, Tatum stars as a Secret Service agent who tries to save the president when the White House is attacked. Jamie Foxx plays the President of the USA.

This won't be the first time Jamie has gotten behind the camera to direct; not only did he helm episodes of his Jamie Foxx Show, in 2011, he also directed a TV movie called Nite Tales, which was also horror.
