The Jamie Foxx Show is an American sitcom created by and starring Jamie Foxx, in which Jamie plays Texas native Jamie King - an aspiring actor who heads to Hollywood in the hopes of finding fame and fortune in the entertainment industry with a mission to make the "Big Time".
But it's going to be the "Big Time" via the King's Tower, the aging but once-famous Los Angeles hotel owned and run by his Aunt Helen (Ellia English) and Uncle Junior (Garrett Morris), where Jamie works in exchange for his room and board.
On the job, he annoys co-worker Braxton P. Hartnabrig (Christopher B. Duncan), the hotel's uptight accountant, and tries to win the attention of gorgeous desk clerk Francesca "Fancy" Monroe (Garcelle Beauvais), who's made it clear she's not interested in an office romance.
Determined to maintain his skills as an entertainer and move into the limelight Jamie pays the bills with his kooky hotel job while trying to break into Hollywood to claim his star.
