Jones’s’ first job in Hollywood was a writer for the NBC sitcom “A Different World.” He then moved to Fox to write for “ROC Live” starring Charles Dutton, and later became a producer for the Fox’s new series “The Sinbad Show” starring comedian Sinbad.


After four years as a writer and/or producer, Jones found himself at a crossroads. He had come to Los Angeles to act, as well as write. Jones eventually landed a role on Fox’s then-new hour sketch comedy show, “Mad TV,” which gave him the chance to combine both of his great loves: acting and writing.
