*It’s been a long time since anyone has been discovered on “Showtime at the Apollo.”

The opportunity may be returning soon as the show is coming back, but  this time on BET. The network is finalizing a deal for a pilot to be produced by Jamie Foxx and the show’s original executive director, Don Weiner.

“Showtime” will continue along the same vein of tradition and will feature the Apollo Theater’s Amateur Night.

The funny thing about all of this is that Foxx was booed off the stage as a young comedian at the Apollo. But look at him now, he’s large and in charge of the very same show.
