Dad Stop Embarrassing Me is the second project the father/daughter duo is collaborating with. Foxx currently DJs Beat Shazam, the Fox music competition series which her father hosts.
This also serves as the second project in Foxx’s lengthy career in which he will star in a TV series centered around him. The first show was The Jamie Foxx Show which aired on the CW from 1996 to 2001.
Netflix has had few multi-cams on its slate over the years, with the streamer sticking primarily to single-camera comedies. Other Netflix multi-cams have included “The Ranch,” “Disjointed,” “One Day at a Time,” “No Good Nick,” “All About the Washingtons,” “Mr. Iglesias,” and “Alexa & Katie.”
