Jamie Foxx to direct spooky Halloween mini-series

Oscar winner Jamie Foxx is stepping behind the camera to write and direct a new horror mini-series.

The Ray star will also executive produce the five-episode series for America's Syfy network. It will be broadcast during the channel's 31 Days of Halloween programming marathon in October.

Announcing his latest venture, Foxx says, "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!"
