Vivica Fox confirmed that the rumors are true. She’s back to television in a new comedy, “Mr. Box Office.” Official word is scheduled to come soon from Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios.
Fox joins the cast of Allen’s new production, along with Keisha Knight Pulliam (of The Cosby Show), Bill Bellamy, Jon Lovitz, and ex-NBA Star Rick Fox, according to HumorMillMag.com. Comedians Tony Roberts, Jeff Garcia and Alex Thomas also are on board with veteran actors Tim Meadows, Gary Busey and Clifton Davis.
The series centers on actor Marcus Jackson (Bellamy), one of the biggest movie stars in the world who, after pushing a paparazzo, finds himself having to put his film career on hold, while relegated to a long-term community service stint teaching underprivileged high school kids in South Central. Rick Fox will play a physical education teacher at the school while Vivica A. Fox will play a “cougar” history teacher.
The show is anticipating on being a huge hit as it currently has a tall order of 104 episodes to fulfill.
“Mr. Box Office” will premiere in the fall possibly on TBS or Byron Allen’s Comedy TV … or both, says Humor Mill.
