Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx, who's currently filming The Amazing Spider-Man 2, has made several notable moves behind the camera in Hollywood. First, the funnyman inked a deal with the Syfy channel to create a five-part horror anthology. And now, TNT has revealed that Jamie is producing and developing a new series for the network titled, "Dad, Stop Embarrassing Me."
The series will be loosely based on Jamie's relationship with his 18-year-old daughter, Corinne. A TNT statement explained the show's concept saying,
"Every teenager is embarrassed by his/her parents. But what if your dad decided to descend upon your life in every way? Inspired by Jamie Foxx’s relationship with his 18-year-old daughter, this comedy explores the dynamic between a parent and a child and all the embarrassment that comes with it."
TNT has not revealed when production of "Dad, Stop Embarrassing Me" will begin, but Syfy has announced that Jamie's horror series will air in October.
Congrats to Jamie and Corinne.

K. Michelle chatted with The Breakfast Club earlier today where she discussed "LAHH ATL", her upcoming disc, Rebellious Soul, and revealed that Chad Ochocinco bought her a pet monkey! Watch the interview inside...
Singer K. Michelle stopped by Power 105 this morning where she talked to The Breakfast Club about her upcoming disc Rebellious Soul (July 30th) and her latest single, "VSOP" which we shared with you yesterday. During the morning chat, which touched on her feuds with fellow "LAHH ATL" stars Kirk Frost & Rasheeda, her infamous temper, and her friendship with mentor R. Kelly, the "Fallin" singer revealed that she plans to leave "LAHH ATL".
On leaving LHHATL: "It's just time to go. I got some other things poppin' off. I got an album. They are actually bringing me to Love and Hip Hop New York. It doesn't matter how good I was singing, what was going on, nobody was listening to my music. All of a sudden I put out this mixtape, it got over a million downloads, all my shows are selling out, because they introduced me on this show. LHHATL was a great stepping stone for me and now coming to New York, that's basically setting up for my new show."
On fighting with Kirk & Rasheeda: Like, Golden Girl came up in there tryna talk to me. He felt some type of way. Look, you run up-get done up. I sat still. I don’t wanna hurt (nobody), but when you fight somebody, you fight them. You not gon’ run up and yank anything from my head.
On Ochocinco and the Monkey he bought her: You can't bring the monkey to New York, so the monkey is in Florida and I've been trying to find it a home. I've always wanted a pet monkey. Chad approached me and he tried to date me and I was like, "I don't want no shoes. Everybody wants shoes. I want a monkey." I thought it was a sweet gesture. We have not slept together. I've been through a lot with this dating thing. I talked to Chad yesterday. We are friends. That's what we need to be.
