'Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!': Air time, how to live stream, trailer and all you need to know about Netflix comedy
The show is based on Foxx's real-life relationship with daughter Corrine Fox who is also an executive producer on 'Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!'
Jamie Foxx strikes us as someone who would be one of the coolest dads on the block. But it seems that at least in one regard, he's just like other fathers -- he embarrasses his daughter too on a regular basis.
'Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!' which comes to Netflix on April 14 is based on Foxx's real-life relationship with his daughter Corrine Fox, who is also an executive producer on the show. According to an official synopsis, "Brian Dixon (Jamie Foxx), successful business owner and bachelor, just became a full-time father to his teenage daughter Sasha (Kyla-Drew). Determined to be the best father he can be, Brian’s going to need all the help he can get from his dad (David Alan Grier) and sister (Porscha Coleman)."
Corrine Fox, 27, is not a teenager anymore, but in an interview to ET, says incidents where her dad embarrasses her continue to be a big part of her life. Corrine says, "Here's the thing, it never stopped. 'Dad Stop Embarrassing me' continues to live on every day of my life. He totally still embarrassed me on set. I mean he plays music 24/7, so in between every take he'd be dancing, he's playing music, and I’d have to wrangle him in and be like, 'Dad, we have to go back to work.' So yes, he was still embarrassing me even on set."
It will be interesting to see Jamie Foxx return to his comedic roots, nearly three decades after he became famous on the TV series 'In Living Color'.
'Dad Stop Embarrassing Me' premieres on April 14 on Netflix with 8 episodes, 30-minute each.
Air time and how to live stream
'Dad Stop Embarrassing Me' can be streamed on Netflix from April 14th, 2021 at 12:30 PM GMT+5:30.
Jamie Foxx is of course a man of many talents. Not just is he a talented actor, but also a talented musician. Both his skill sets of course came together beautifully in the biopic 'Ray' for which he won the Academy Award, BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild Award, Critics' Choice Movie Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. Movies based on musicians are clearly lucky for Jamie Foxx, who also impressed as the record executive Curtis Taylor Jr in the Jennifer Hudson-starrer 'Dreamgirls'.
Some of Foxx's other notable roles include Django Freeman in the film 'Django Unchained', the supervillain Electro in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' and 'Spider-Man: No Way Home', Will Stacks in 'Annie' (2014), gangster Bats / Leon Jefferson III in 'Baby Driver' and as Walter McMillian in 'Just Mercy' (2019), where he received a SAG Award nomination. Foxx is also a Grammy Award-winning musician, producing four albums, which have charted in the top ten of the U.S. Billboard 200.
Kyla Drew's breakout role was in the Academy Award-nominated film 'The Prisoners'. Prior to that, she had a recurring role on the Nickelodeon series 'Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn' and also guest-starred on several popular television shows including, 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'NCIS,' 'Castle,' 'Jessie,' and 'How I Met Your Mother.'
What's new ?
Well everything, but one part of the show will bring in the 'old is gold' vibe. 'Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!' will see Foxx reunite with his 'In Living Color' co-star David Alan Grier, who plays Pops, a character loosely based on Jamie's stepfather.
From skinny jeans to dubious dance moves, and a rather terrible Obama impression, you'll see why 'Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!' lives up to its title in the trailer below.
