"It's power packed with energy," Crockett tells us. "It's got an In Living Color 2011 and beyond-type flavor."
The series is executive-produced by Jamie Foxx, and Crockett says to expect big guest stars to stop by, including Chris Brown and Russell Simmons. "Russell became a fan of [my impression of him] so much that he wanted to do a sketch with me [where] I'm his clone," he says.
But there is one impression that continues to stump him: President Obama. "He has that voice that shifts cadence [and has a] deep register," he says, as he breaks into his best Obama.
Watch him do Jay-Z, his most requested impersonation, in the video below.
In the Flow with Affion Crockett debuts Sunday at 9/8c on Fox.
