We just got the official word this morning- and it was confirmed on Deadline that the Affion Crockett /Jamie Foxx sketch comedy show not only got their official show name, but it also got the official launch date. If you recall, the name was originally set s The Playground but that name was dropped early on and went through several other name changes before this release.
Here is the article as reported by Deadline;
Fox has scheduled In the Flow with Affion Crockett, the half-hour sketch-comedy series hosted by and starring comedian Affion Crockett and executive produced by Jamie Foxx. The series, previouslyUntitled Jamie Foxx/Affion Crockett Project, will have a one-hour premiere on Sunday, Aug. 14, at 9 PM before moving to its regular Sunday 9:30 PM time slot the following week. In the Flow will also air reruns at midnight on Saturdays beginning Aug. 20. Fox originally picked up the project to series in early September with a 12-episode midseason order.
