The planned Halloween (13) debut of Oscar winner Jamie Foxx's new horror mini-series has reportedly been postponed because of scheduling issues.

The Ray star stepped behind the camera to write, direct and executive produce a five-episode series, which was due to air in the U.S. during the Syfy network's 31 Days of Halloween marathon in October (13).

However, editors at industry website report the launch of the show has been pushed back due to "scheduling reasons".

Announcing the venture, Foxx revealed, "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. 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!"
