Dad Stop Embarrassing Me
Netflix has given a formal series green light to Dad Stop Embarrassing Me, a father daughter comedy starring and executive produced by Oscar winner Jamie Foxx. The series is inspired by Foxx’s relationship with his daughter, Corinne Foxx, who produces alongside Alex Avant. Kyla-Drew (The Good Doctor, Jessie) will play Foxx’s daughter, with David Alan Grier (A Soldier’s Play, Sprinter) also starring on the multi-camera comedy.
Dad Stop Embarrassing Me was casting and gearing up for production in February before the coronavirus pandemic paused most production activities. Ahead of the official series order, the original showrunner Jim Patterson, co-creator of Netflix’s The Ranch, recently stepped down. He was replaced by Bentley Kyle Evans (Martin, The Jamie Foxx Show). Initially hired as consultant, Evans, who previously co-created/exec produced with Foxx The Jamie Foxx Show in addition to serving as showrunner, was named executive producer/showrunner on the new sitcom. Evans hinted at the duo’s new collaboration in a recent Instagram post. (you can see it below).Ken Whittingham (Modern Family, Black-ish, Grace & Frankie) will direct all episodes.
