Showtime Cancels ‘White Famous’ After Only One Season


Showtime’s White Famous is coming to an end. Showtime has opted not to move forward with the second season of the half-hour comedy series headlined by Saturday Night Live alum Jay Pharaoh.

Based on Jamie Foxx’s personal experiences coming up in the business, White Famous hailed from Californication creator Tom Kapinos, director Tim Story and Foxx, who was a recurring guest star. It focused on a talented, young African-American comedian, Floyd Mooney (Pharoah), whose star is rising, forcing him to navigate the treacherous waters of maintaining his credibility as he begins to cross-over toward becoming “white famous.”

White Famous premiered on October 15th to mixed reviews. Foxx executive produced the series and the show featured Utkarsh Ambudkar, Cleopatra Coleman, Meagan Good, Stephen Tobolowsky and Michael Rapaport.

Jay Pharaoh took to Twitter to comment on the show’s cancellation. “The fans love @SHO_WhiteFamous and so do we, thank you all for the support, love y’all so much for taking to the show.. To BE CONTINUED!”
