Jay Pharoah Lands Showtime Series

Less than a week after we learned Jay Pharoah was leaving “Saturday Night Live” after six seasons, the comedian has landed his own series at Showtime.

Pharoah will star in “White Famous,” a half-hour comedy series about an African American comedian who tries to maintain his identity while crossing over to mainstream celeb status.

Jamie Foxx will executive produce the series and appear in a recurring role.


Congrats to Jay!
