Starz CEO Chris Albrecht isn’t the only one working on a television mob drama these days: Jamie Foxx has spent the past two weeks filming a trailer for the potential series Tommy’s Little Girl.  The project revolves around a group of mobsters, including Paul Sorvino and Sopranos alum Tony Sirico.  According to Deadline, Selma Blair is on board as Sorvino’s daughter.  As indicated by the title, their relationship would anchor the overall narrative.  Currently in the editing bay, Foxx intends to shop the trailer to “top cable networks” once it is ready.

Oddly enough, Tommy’s Little Girl makes a trend of Foxx diving into projects trailer-first.  Foxx and Martin Lawrence plan to reprise their In Living Color characters Sheneneh and Wanda after filming the movie trailer parody Skank Robbers for the BET Awards, which you can check out after the jump.
