HENDERSON, Nev., June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Multihyphenate Laurie Foxx – an award-winning Hollywood writer, director and producer, songwriter and performer, author and entrepreneur – has signed with Lisa Tenner of Tenner and Associates for management.
Through her Houston-based company Aqua Foxx Productions and otherwise, Foxx has brought her multifaceted talents to numerous film and television projects. She is writer, director and producer of Caveman Theory, a three-time festival award-winning TV comedy pilot based on her novel. In the pilot Foxx plays Laura Owlsley, an ambitious anthropologist who enlists a regular guy to live with and to be her test subject, seeking to prove her theory that, "No matter how evolved modern man has become, he is still ruled by his basic needs and primal instincts."
Among other projects, Foxx produced and appeared in The Open Road, a heartwarming 2009 road-trip comedy starring Jeff Bridges, Justin Timberlake, Kate Mara, Mary Steenburgen, Ted Danson and Harry Dean Stanton, which was released theatrically and aired on STARZ; executive produced, acted in and wrote two original songs for the 2009 horror/science fiction movie Portal, which aired on Showtime; and wrote, produced and starred in the TV pilot The Laurie Foxx Show: If You Don't Like It, Get Your Own Show!, produced by Quanah Productions.
Beyond the screen, Foxx is an award-winning singer/songwriter with four original albums and an accomplished writer of books including her signature work, The Caveman Theory, and its comedic spin-offs, two Cavemanisms/Cavewomanisms pocket books and It's a Man Thing.
A University of Oklahoma marketing graduate, Foxx won the school's Entrepreneurship award for her business plan for Containers Unlimited, opening her own retail store six months after graduation, eventually expanding to three, and earning ten years of retail success before her passion to write and produce led her into the entertainment industry.
Foxx is also a coveted keynote speaker and performer who has wowed audiences from the Million Mom March to SXSW to EAT'M (Emerging Artists and Talent in Music) in Las Vegas, one of only a few musical artists asked to perform for three consecutive years. She divides her time between L.A. and Houston and remains married to her husband of many years, a self-admitted "caveman." For more information, please visit www.LaurieFoxx.com.
