Jamie Foxx (“Ray”, “Django Unchained”) will star alongside Kyla-Drew (“Prisoners”, “Peppermint”) in a new family/teen comedy series for Netflix. “Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!” will arrive on April 14th and follows successful business owner and bachelor Brian Dixon (Jamie Foxx) as he becomes a full-time father to his teenage daughter Sasha (Kyla-Drew). Determined to be the best father he can be, Brian’s going to need all the help he can get from his dad (David Alan Grier) and sister (Porscha Coleman) — and Sasha’s going to need all the help she can get learning how to deal with her new, lovingly chaotic family.
The 8-episode series, described as “full of heart and humor”, is inspired by Foxx’s real-life relationship with daughter Corinne Foxx, who also serves as executive producer. The multi-cam sitcom reunites Foxx with showrunner Bentley Kyle Evans (The Jamie Foxx Show) and is directed by Ken Whittingham (black-ish).
“Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!” is rated 12 in the UK for language and drug misuse.
