Cryptkeeper Jamie Foxx To Make Horror Anthology for SyFy

Jamie Foxx, long thought of as the Rod Serling of In Living Color, is returning to television to write, direct, produce, and likely appear in a five-episode horror anthology for SyFy.

Deadline describes the mini-series as being in the vein of things like Tales from the Crypt, The Twilight Zone, and Tales from the Darkside--morality tales with a twist ending and/or a guy who ends up being The Devil. The episodes will debut in October, part of SyFy's 31 Days Of Halloween marathon of scary programming that doesn't cost too much to air.

"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," Foxx said in a statement. "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," he teased about how he'll definitely end up being Satan, not merely a sinister but charming man in a flamboyant crimson suit.

Foxx has not yet titled his anthology. In a horrific life lesson of his own, he already carelessly wasted away The Jamie Foxx Show.
