Jamie Foxx will be starring in a new upcoming Netflix comedy, “Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!” Besides the fact Jamie Foxx will finally be reaching television screens once again, his very own daughter, actress and TV host Corinne Foxx, is serving as an executive producer.
The Netflix original is inspired by Jamie Foxx’s supportive father antics while raising Corinne.
Jamie Foxx plays Brian, an overprotective father who engages in a plethora of hilarious histrionics and dramatics as he supports his teen daughter, played by actress Kyla Drew. He described his older antics as being very extra in cheering on his daughter’s milestones, which also caused her to cringe in adolescent awkwardness on the regular.
“Brian really wants to understand [Sasha] so badly and be there for her — and he maybe goes to extreme lengths to do so. When you’re in the moment as a teenager and going through this stuff, it’s not funny, and you’re actually upset. But it’s so fulfilling to see how these stories have grown into something that my dad and I can cherish and love. This is our story, and it’s just like, ‘Wow, at least we went through all that for something,’” shared the younger Foxx. Corrine states.
Corinne Foxx is already establishing her name in the industry.
Besides executive producing the Netflix series, the star also co-hosts Fox’s “Beat Shazam,” a musical TV show, with her father, Jamie. The pair has also starred in such films as the horror fare 47 Meters Down.
Corinne definitely understands the life of having an “extra” parent and even recalls one of her favorite moments. “I was cheering at my final game in high school, and I look into the crowd and my whole family is there in T-shirts with my face on them. It’s 15 people, and my dad is the ringleader. The last thing a teenage girl ever wants is their dad drawing attention to themselves in that way,” Corrine Foxx described the memorable day.
