'In the Flow with Affion Crockett' premieres Aug. 19
Fox’s new Jamie Foxx-produced sketch comedy series has a schedule and a title: “In the Flow with Affion Crockett” will bow Sunday, Aug. 14 at 9 p.m. with an hourlong premiere. Subsequent halfhour segs will air at 9:30, with reruns at midnight on Saturdays from Aug. 20.
Show, previously “Untitled Jamie Foxx Project” was originally picked up for midseason by the network in September, with a preview and a premiere announced for March 31 and June 9 respectively (and then scrapped).
Fox described the series, hosted by comedian Crockett, as “in the vein of” “In Living Color,” with sketches spoofing movies, television and celebrities, among others. Confirmed guests include Russell Simmons, “Glee” thesp Harry Shum, Jr., and Snoop Dogg, among others.
The show is produced by Fox, Foxx/King Entertainment and Tantamount Studios, with Foxx, Todd Yasui, Marcus King, Jamie Rucker King, Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum and “Arrested Development” creator Mitch Hurwitz. Crockett writes and produces, as well.
Carl Jones will serve as co-exec producer.
