The Jamie Foxx Show is an American television sitcom that aired on the WB Network from August 28, 1996 to January 14, 2001. The series starred Jamie Foxx, Garcelle Beauvais, Christopher B. Duncan, Ellia English, and Garrett Morris.



Jamie King (Jamie Foxx) is an aspiring musician from Terrell, Texas who has come to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music. To support himself, he works in his family's hotel, the financially strapped King's Tower, which is owned by his aunt and uncle, Helen and Junior King (Ellia English and Garrett Morris).

Among his co-workers during the series' run were the beautiful and intelligent Francesca "Fancy" Monroe, played by Garcelle Beauvais, and Jamie's high-strung, stuffed-shirt, "bougie" nemesis Braxton P. Hartnabrig, portrayed by Christopher B. Duncan.

Jamie's romantic overtures toward Fancy were mostly unrequited until the final two seasons, when the two began to tentatively date and eventually became engaged. Braxton, who generally served as the brunt of Jamie's insults, was known to get in a few digs of his own as the series progressed.




The series aired in broadcast syndication distributed by Telepictures Distribution and Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution from 2000 to 2003. Reruns of the series also aired on BET from 2005 to 2008 and started airing once again September 2009 to present, and as part of The CW Television Network's The CW Daytime (along with reruns of The Wayans Bros.) block from September 2008 to September 2009.

Several episodes of The Jamie Foxx Show were also available on AOL's In2TV, which allows Internet users to watch streamed or download high resolution episodes of various favorite classics.[1] Since Time Warner's June 2009 announcement that it would split from America Online, the episodes have been moved over to AOL Video.
