Go To

A sitcom that aired on The WB from 1996 to 2001, starring Jamie Foxx.

Foxx plays Jamie King, an aspiring singer from Texas who moves to L.A. and works at a hotel run by his Aunt Helen (Ellia English) and Uncle Junior (Garrett Morris). Among Jamie's co-workers are Love Interest Fancy (Garcelle Beauvais) and Straight Man Braxton (Christopher B. Duncan). Hijinks ensue.

However, the beginning of the fourth season brought about a large retool, with Jamie quitting his job at the hotel to pursue his music career, and getting hired by an ad agency called Jingles 2000. Afterwards, the rest of the cast (save Fancy) were seen less or less often, with Jamie's new co-workers becoming his new best friends.
