TBS's stable of original comedies continues to grow with the
straight-to-series pick-up of a new series from comedy superstar and
multiple Emmy® nominee Tracy Morgan (30 Rock). The untitled series is being created and executive-produced by Jordan Peele (Key & Peele) and John Carcieri (Vice Principals). Morgan will also serve as executive producer, along with Eric and Kim Tannenbaum (Two and a Half Men) and Joel Zadak of Principato Young (Key & Peele).
The series is produced by Studio T, TBS & TNT's in-house production
studio. 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. TBS has ordered 10 episodes of this single-camera
comedy series, which looks to capture the rawness of Tracy's stand up
persona while also commenting on race relations, the Gen X/Millennial
gap and the American penal system.
