NEW YORK – December 5, 2017 – Academy Award® winner and executive producer Jamie Foxx, who played an over-the-top, satirized version of himself in the pilot episode of WHITE FAMOUS, will reprise his role for the series’ season one finale airing this Sunday, December 10 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME. The episode finds Floyd Mooney (Jay Pharoah) coming full circle as his life is once again turned upside down due to a viral internet video.
