The father-daughter comedy ‘Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!’ starring Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx, Kyla-Drew played Foxx’s daughter, along with David Alan Grier, Porscha Coleman and Jonathan Kite will not be renewed for a second season on Netflix.
The news comes after sitcom veteran Jim Patterson, who co-created the show with Foxx, decided to step down as showrunner ahead of the start of production and was replaced by American television writer, producer, director, and actor Bentley Kyle Evans. According to reports, Foxx was involved in the decision to end the series.
The series debuted its first season, which had a total of eight episodes on April 14. Ken Whittingham had directed the first six episodes of the season, and Evans had directed the last two. The multi-camera comedy series was inspired by actor Foxx’s relationship with his real-life daughter, Corinne Foxx. Actor Foxx led the comedy series as the character Brian Dixon, a successful businessman and bachelor who becomes a full-time father to his teenage daughter, Sasha. The series was produced by Alex Avant, Chris Arrington, and James Barnett and was executive produced by Bentley Kyle Evans, Jamie Foxx, Corinne Foxx, and Ken Whittingham. Apart from the series, the creative partnership of Jamie Foxx and Netflix will continue with the upcoming films titled They Cloned Tyrone and Day Shift.
According to reports, some of the other shows that have been cancelled on Netflix includes titles like the teen drama Grand Army, the graphic novel adaptation Jupiter’s Legacy (although a spinoff has been ordered for the series), The Last Kingdom ad The Duchess, which were cancelled back in April.
