Jamie Foxx Spins ‘Embarrassing’ Father-Daughter Moments Into New Netflix Comedy Series

Dads have a knack for embarrassing their kids, and Jamie Foxx is no exception. But the 52-year-old Oscar-winning actor and his 26-year-old former Miss Golden Globe daughter Corinne Foxx are monetizing their cringe-worthy moments with a new Netflix comedy series called Dad Stop Embarrassing Me. Jamie is set to star and executive produce while Corinne will be one of the producers.

The storyline is based on their father-daughter relationship, which has included many humiliating experiences. “There was a time when I was a cheerleader in high school,” Corinne told Yahoo! Entertainment last year. “It was like my senior game, and my dad shows up in the stands with my whole family, which was like 20 people, wearing shirts with my face on it.”

On Beat Shazam, the competition show Jamie hosts and Corinne DJs, Jamie has continued the tradition of mortifying his daughter. “My dad embarrasses me a lot,” Corinne has said. “You can see this on the show when my dad is doing too much, or he starts dancing, or we play, like, sexy songs and he starts — I don’t even know — like, gyrating in the crowd. … He’s like a big kid, so it’s a good time. It’s not like working with an old man.”

On the series, Corinne’s character will be played by Kyla-Drew. David Alan Grier, Porscha Coleman, Jonathan Kite, Heather Hemmens, and Valente Rodriguez are also among the cast. This marks Jamie Foxx’s first return to a multi-camera comedy series since The Jamie Foxx show folded in 2001 after five seasons.

Given the humorous fodder fatherhood provides, we’re sure this series will provide plenty of laughs.
