The King’s Tower is a Los Angeles hotel run by Junior King (Garrett Morris) and his wife, Helen (Ellia English).
Their nephew Jamie (Jamie Foxx) is a hopeful actor who has just left his home in Terrell, Texas to pursue his dream in Tinsel Town. In the meantime, he is residing (and working) at his aunt and uncle’s hotel.
Stories follow the events in Jamie’s life as he deals with the hotel staff and patrons while trying to find his niche in show business at the same time.
Francesca “Fancy” Monroe (Garcelle Beauvais) is the gorgeous desk clerk (a future romantic interest for Jamie) and Braxton P. Hartnabrig (Christopher B. Duncan) is the stuffy perfectionist accountant who also has eyes for Fancy.
