Jamie Foxx’s five-episode horror anthology series for the Syfy channel has been postponed.
The project that Foxx was to write, direct and executive produce was scheduled to debut this fall during Syfy’s annual 31 Days of Halloween programming marathon, reports Indiewire. Foxx’s series has been compared to TV classics like Tales from the Crypt and the Twilight Zone, shows that tell tales of morality with themes such as 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.
Reasons given behind the delay are said to be scheduling conflicts, but nothing specific has been reported.
Indiewire continues to explain that Foxx is also working on developing a scripted series for TNT, inspired by his relationship with his daughter.
Foxx co-stars in upcoming thriller White House Down with Channing Tatum. He plays the President in the film while Tatum stars as a secret service agent.
Other projects in which Foxx has directed include episodes of his Jamie Foxx Show in 2011 and TV horror movie Nite Tales.
