Marvin Gaye’s family has given their support to Jamie Foxx. It’s the first time the late music artist’s family has given its support to such a biopic, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
“This project will be a powerful and definitive telling of Marvin Gaye’s life story,” said Marvin Gaye III, the singer’s son in the report. He will be an executive producer of the biopic series, along with Foxx, Suzanne de Passe (who has a long history with Motown) and Madison Jones.
The series also has a thumbs-up from Motown founder Berry Gordy Jr., according to Hollywood Reporter.
