Jamie Foxx Working on TV Mob Drama

It's been nearly a decade now since actor/director/singer/comedian Jamie Foxx's last regular television gig, 'The Jamie Foxx Show,' went off the air, but now it looks like he may finally be making a triumphant return to the small screen. The venue? Why, it's a mob drama of course.

Okay, so we know what you're thinking: what? According to Deadline, though, Foxx is in the process of polishing his producer byline by developing a project called 'Tommy's Little Girl,' which will focus on the relationship between an aging mob boss and his daughter.

It may not be the most obvious genre for Foxx, who made his name on television with the classic sketch comedy series 'In Living Color,' but as his career has shown, Foxx enjoys nothing more than pushing his creative boundaries and defying expectations. And 'Tommy's Little Girl' is no different: To pitch the series, Foxx is putting together a full-length trailer, financed by a private investor, which he plans to then use a calling card to drum up studio interest.
And if the cast of the 'Tommy's Little Girl' trailer is any indication, chances are good we may be seeing more of Foxx's producing talents: the clip reportedly features Paul Sorvino and Selma Blair as the father/daughter team, with backup support from actors like James Russo ('Donnie Brasco') and 'The Sopranos' alum Tony Sirico.

No word yet on when the public can expect to get a look at the 'Tommy's Little Girl' trailer, but fans of Foxx won't have too long to wait to catch him on screen: his next film, 'Due Date,' arrives in theaters on November 5.
