TBS Orders Tracy Morgan Comedy Produced by Jordan Peele
Tracy Morgan’s long in-the-works FX comedy just moved to TBS. The network announced today that it’s ordered 10 episodes of the untitled comedy starring Morgan, which is co-executive produced by Morgan and Jordan Peele. Here’s the logline from TBS:
After being released on good behavior from a 15-year prison stint, Tracy is shocked to see just how much the world has changed in his absence. Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, Tracy discovers that his former girlfriend has married an affable, successful white man, who is helping raise his twin sons he never knew existed. Wanting nothing more than to connect with his kids, but having neither the money to support them nor himself, Tracy falls back on the skills he learned in prison to make ends meet while treading on unfamiliar territory.
A premiere date for the series has not yet been announced.
