The planned Syfy channel/Jamie Foxx 5-episode horror anthology series that Foxx was to write, direct and exec produce, has been postponed.
Syfy previously announced that it would debut the series during their annual 31 Days Of Halloween programming marathon this October.
Reasons given? Scheduling conflicts, although nothing specific.
The series, which was compared to TV classics like Tales From The Crypt and The Twilight Zone, was to 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.
Foxx is also developing a scripted series for TNT inspired by his relationship with his daughter.
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.
