Syfy has just unveiled that Oscar winner Jamie Foxx and his production company Foxxhole are bringing a high-profile horror anthology series to the small screen later this year.  In fact, Foxx is doing just about everything: he plans to executive produce, write and direct the series’ five episodes, which are set to debut in the fall during Syfy’s month-long celebration of all things Halloween.

The as of yet unnamed series will riff off of classics such as Tales from the Crypt and The Twilight Zone, focusing on creepy tales of woe for those engage in bad behavior (as Bela Lugosi would say, “Beware … beware!”.  Hit the jump for more on the series.

Foxx has commented that,

“This is a project that I’ve wanted to do for a long time and I’m so happy to see it come to life. Get ready to lose it when some special friends and I bring the scares this October, and who knows… maybe I’ll make a guest appearance or two along the way!”

Dakota Pictures will be co-producing the series, along with Jeff Stilson, Jaime King and Julie Yorn.  Foxx will also work with writers Mike Ferris and John Pogue.

From what it sounds like, the series will not be for sissies (which means I shouldn’t watch it, even though it sounds promising).  Syfy’s Mark Stern, in discussing his excitement about bringing Foxx’s unique talents to the project, referred to the episodes as “truly scary cautionary tales.”
