TBS has announced that Tracy Morgan’s new comedy series is going by the title The Last O.G., and will see him starring alongside Cedric the Entertainer (The Soul Man), Tiffany Haddish (Keanu), Allen Maldonado (The Equalizer), Ryan Gaul (Identity Thief), Taylor Mosby (Criminal Minds) and Dante Hoagland (The New Edition Story).
Created by Jordan Peele and John Carcieri, The Last O.G. sees Morgan as Tray, “an ex-con who is shocked to see just how much the world has changed when he is released on good behavior from a 15-year prison stint. Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, he discovers that his former girlfriend, Shay (Haddish), has married an affable, successful white man who is helping raise Tray’s twin sons who he never knew existed. Wanting nothing more than to connect with his kids, but having neither the money to support them nor himself, Tray falls back on the skills he learned in prison to make ends meet while treading unfamiliar territory.”
The Last O.G. is set to premiere on TBS later this year.
