Samuel L. Jackson Heads To The Small Screen

Another one of my many mottos: diversify your portfolio.

From BlackTalentNews:
Oscar nominated actor Samuel L. Jackson is venturing onto the small screen with a two-year, first-look deal at CBS Paramount Network television.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pact calls for Jackson to develop and executive produce a series of projects for CBS Paramount through his production company Uppity Films.

Jackson says he is also open to the idea of appearing in any shows he develops, much like Salma Hayek's guest spots on her series "Ugly Betty.

Jackson is in the process of hiring an executive to shepherd his TV development. His previous stint as a producer was for Spike TV's animated series Afro Samurai."

Uhhh... Uppity Films????

    The hardest working black man in Hollywood... or at least the most prolific!

    Some of his roles leave a lot to be desired... but I guess that such career diversity is bound to be tinged, to some degree, with a lack of discernment.

    But hey, he's not the prettiest, and a man's got to eat, so kudos to him!
