This might not be the news anyone was expecting, but as soon as I get done with an obligatory "blame it on the alcohol" reference, it's time to tell you that MTV has added Jamie Foxx's "Untitled Sketch Comedy Show" to its development slate of upcoming TV series (read the press release). The logline reads: "Jamie Foxx executive produces the next generation of In Living Color." And he'll be doing it alongside Fax Bahr & Adam Small, who wrote for In Living Color and are also responsible for The Jamie Kennedy Experiment, Blue Collar TV, Chocolate News, as well as co-creating, executive producing and writing MADtv. It had been said that Bahr & Small were shopping MADtv after its demise earlier this year on FOX, but lacking any news to report on that, perhaps we can speculate that reuniting with Foxx on an MTV series will take the top spot on their priority list now.
