BET Wants To Reboot "Showtime At The Apollo" w/ Jamie Foxx

BET plans to reboot Showtime At the Apollo!

A deal is reportedly being worked out that will see pilot air on the network for the long-running variety show (which ended its 21-year run in 2008) revived with Jamie Foxx executive producing; the goal being to eventually run it as a prime-time series on the cable network.

The show’s original director Don Weiner will also serve as producer.

No word on whether this reboot will retain the show’s old format, or if it’ll be revamped as well.

Who’s excited? :)
