‘White Famous’ Canceled
Showtime has pulled the plug on “White Famous” after one season due to poor ratings.
The half-hour comedy series, produced by Jamie Foxx, starred Jay Pharoah as Floyd Mooney, a talented young comic on the rise in the industry, which forces him to navigate the treacherous waters of maintaining his credibility while crossing over into becoming “white famous.”
The comedy starring “Saturday Night Live” alum Jay Pharoah drew a small audience of under 2 million viewers in multiplatform airings. Reviews were mostly negative for the series about an
African-American comedian struggling to maintain his credibility with his core audience while also striving to crossover into becoming “white famous.”
I didn’t love the show, but I tuned in from time to time to support it.
