is proof that you can’t keep a good thing down too long. Jay Pharoah
vet, who learned earlier this week his comedic services were no longer needed on the late-night sketch series, scored a major Saturday Night Live pilot deal at Showtime, along with his former co-star Taran Killam, who also got the boot from the show.
Jay will headline the half-hour comedy
White Famous, which is being executive-produced by and Jamie Foxx Barbershop director Tim Story.
The series revolves around a talented, rising African-American comedian, Floyd Mooney, played by Jay, who is trying to hold on to his credibility as he becomes mainstream popular, or “white famous.”
This isn’t the first time Jay has worked with Showtime. Just last year, his one-hour comedy special
Jay Pharoah: Can I Be Me? premiered on the network.
There hasn’t been word on when the series will premiere.
