It’s time to to say good bye to the comedy White Famous as Showtime cancels the half-hour show after one season, Variety has learned. The show only had an ten-episode run before the cancellation.

First premiering in October 2017, the comedy focused on Floyd Mooney’s (Jay Pharaoh) journey in rising to stardom in the industry and becoming “white famous.” Jamie Foxx produced the show, as the story centers around Foxx’s personal rise to fame. Foxx also guest starred on the show a few times.

Utkarsh Ambudkar, who played Mooney’s agent on the show, tweeted: “We had a blast making this show. Thanks to everyone who supported and showed love. Meant the world to us. Much love to cast and crew.”

Not only was the show produced by Foxx, but the program creators included Tom Kapinos (Californication) serving as show runner, Chris Spencer and Buddy Lewis. The show also drew in 1.8 million viewers weekly.
