It may not be a good day for Jamie Foxx's movie "Django Unchained" in China. But, hey, at least the actor is getting some love from Syfy.

The network announced Thursday that the actor will be executive-producing, writing and directing a five-episode horror anthology for them.

The untitled series, produced through the actor's Foxxhole Productions, will roll out this year as part of Syfy's 31 Days of Halloween this October. The episodes will consist of morality tales, according to the release, in the vein of "Tales from the Crypt" and "The Twilight Zone." 

The "Django Unchained" star said in a statement:  “This is a project that I’ve wanted to do for a long time and I’m so happy to see it come to life. Get ready to lose it when some special friends and I bring the scares this October, and who knows… maybe I’ll make a guest appearance or two along the way!"
