WHITE FAMOUS will premiere its first two episodes on SHOWTIME back-to-back on Sunday, October 15 at 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, following the hit drama series RAY DONOVAN.

In WHITE FAMOUS, Pharoah plays talented young comedian Floyd Mooney, whose star is rising, forcing him to navigate the treacherous waters of maintaining his credibility as he begins to cross over into the world of becoming "white famous." A co-production of Lionsgate Television and SHOWTIME, WHITE FAMOUS also stars Utkarsh Ambudkar (The Mindy Project) as Malcolm, Floyd's frustrated agent who wants his client to do whatever it takes to make it big. Cleopatra Coleman (The Last Man on Earth) plays Floyd's ex-girlfriend Sadie, the love of his life and the mother of his son, played by Lonnie Chavis (This is Us). Jacob Ming-Trent (Feed the Beast) stars as Ron Balls, Floyd's roommate - in the middle of the chaos, he remains the voice of reason. Stephen Tobolowsky (The Goldbergs) guest stars in the series' pilot.
