COLLATERAL star Jamie Foxx is clearing some time in his increasingly busy schedule to work on a TV pilot for a new comedy sketch show.

The comedian has had the UNTITLED JAMIE FOXX SKETCH SHOW in the works for a number of years, but became too busy to devote his attentions to it, as his movie career took off.

But now the funnyman has embarked on a search for an ensemble of comedic actors who can do improvisation, original characters and impersonations, to star in the show.

The project will follow the format of Foxx's popular 1990s show IN LIVING COLOR, which featured Jim Carrey, Chris Rock and the WAYANS brothers among its cast - and Jennifer Lopez as a member of the FLY GIRL dancing troupe.
