*In one of the highlights at Syfy’s upfront in April, the cable network announced a five-episode horror anthology series executive produced, written and directed by Jamie Foxx.

The show, in which the Oscar winner also was eying guest appearances, was slated to air during Syfy’s annual 31 Days Of Halloween programming marathon this October. That won’t happen, reports Deadline.com.

The series has been postponed for what’s being described as “scheduling reasons,” the website reports. No new target date has been set.

Foxx has been busy promoting his new movie “White House Down” and is expected to sit down with Syfy brass to discuss future plans for the horror series after the film opens this Friday.
