London: Oscar winner Jamie Foxx is stepping behind the camera to write and direct a new horror mini-series.

The 45-year-old will also executive produce the five-episode series for America`s Syfy network. It will be broadcast during the channel`s 31 Days of Halloween programming marathon in October, reported Contactmusic.

"This is a project that I`ve wanted to do for a long time and I`m so happy to see it come to life. Get ready to lose it when some special friends and I bring the scares this October, and who knows... Maybe I`ll make a guest appearance or two along the way!," Foxx said.
