The date is finally here. After months of discussion, planning, and deal making, comedian Affion Crocket will be hitting primetime television as the star of his new sketch comedy show on Fox called In The Flow.

We wrote about this forthcoming project way back in September of last year (see that post here).

Crocket is making his rounds now promoting the show – here is video from a recent interview he did with Fox News in Chicago.

In The Flow premieres on August 14 on Fox – check your local listing for times. Crocket said the sketch comedy show has a hip-hop, high-energy vibe similar to In Living Color and Chapelle Show.

Jamie Foxx produced the show which features Snoop Dogg and Russell Simmons as early guests.
