HBO Renews HUNG for Third Season; Fox Orders New Sketch Comedy Series from Jamie Foxx

     September 1, 2010


The dark comedy series Hung looks to keep on giving pleasure in all the right places.  Deadline reports HBO has just picked up the show for a third season run of 10 episodes to air in 2011. If you’re unfamiliar with the well-endowed series, it follows a down-on-his-luck Detroit high-school coach (Thomas Jane) moonlighting as a male prostitute and his rookie, poetry-loving pimp (Jane Adams). Ironically enough, the adulterous show was put together by husband and wife team Dmitry Lipkin and Colette Burson. If you’re looking to catch up on the series or give it a shot, the second season finale airs September 12th, so you should have plenty of time after that to get started.

Hit the jump for news on a new sketch comedy series from Jamie Foxx.

Since Jamie Foxx has more recently taken more of a liking to his more dramatic acting talents, it’s easy to forget that the actor is also a full fledged comedian having done plenty of stand-up sets and even starring in the sketch comedy series In Living Color (the same show where Jim Carrey got his start) back in the day. But now Deadline reports Foxx is returning to his comedic roots with a new sketch comedy series that Fox (the network) has just ordered for an initial 12-episode run. Apparently Foxx and Fox tried developing a sketch comedy series somewhat recently, but this is an all new endeavor going by the tentative title The Jamie Foxx Project. Maybe this will allow him to get Sheneneh and Wanda out of his system on TV instead of the proposed big screen adaptation announced last year.
