Network: The WB
In the mid-'90s, quality black television experienced a significant boom, and some could even be found on The WB (remember that?). One such program was The Jaime Foxx Show, based on Foxx's own experience making it in the entertainment industry.
After moving to L.A. to pursue a career in music, Jamie King works at his aunt and uncle's hotel to support himself during his quest for success. Featuring a theme song sung by Foxx himself, the show followed his trials and tribulations working at King's Tower, chasing after Francesca "Fancy" Monroe and consistently playing the shit out of one of the OG cornball brothers, Braxton P. Hartnabrig.
Over a decade after the show went off the air, the NAACP Image Award-winning program is remembered for demonstrating Foxx's comic timing and singing chops, the word Motherfloodpucker, and abusing "brougham." It also got plenty of elementary school children in trouble for shoving their hands in the faces of classmates.
One question, though—what happened to Dennis?
