Jamie Foxx is bringing a new horror anthology series to the Syfy Channel. The actor will write, direct and produce the untitled series, and he hints that he will appear in an episode or two.
The series will be five episodes, set to air during Syfy's 31 Days of Halloween programming in October, and is being compared to shows like The Twilight Zone and Tales From the Crypt. “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,” Foxx said at the Syfy Channel's upfront presentation. The show is said to be a morality tale focusing on issues like jealousy, envy and superficiality.
In addition to Foxx, other writers signed on to the series include Michael Ferris (Terminator Salvation, Primeval) and John Pogue (Everwood, Army Wives).
