The Jamie Foxx Show

Show Summary

Texas native Jamie King (Jamie Foxx, "In Living Color") is an aspiring actor who heads to Hollywood in hopes to find fame and fortune in the entertainment industry. To support himself, he works at his Aunt Helen (Ellia English) and Uncle Junior's (Garrett Morris, "Martin") Los Angeles hotel, the King's Towers. On the job, he annoys co-worker Braxton P. Hartnabrig (Christopher B. Duncan), the up-tight accountant, and tries to win the attention of gorgeous desk clerk, Francesca "Fancy" Monroe (Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon, "NYPD Blue", "Opposite Sex"), who has made it clear that she is not interested in an office romance. Nevertheless, Jamie is determined to maintain his skills as an entertainer and move into the limelight. After starting out as a member of the "In Living Color" troupe, Foxx stars in his own show that was the WB's highest-rated series for the 1996-1997 season.
