Tracy Morgan to Star in FX Comedy Pilot Written by Jordan Peele and John Carcieri

(via Deadline)

This is a pretty great way for Tracy Morgan to make a comeback.

The latest addition to FX’s comedy development slate comes in a pilot that seems tailor made for its star Tracy Morgan. Written by Jordan Peele and Eastbound & Down’s John Carcieri, Morgan will play a recently released convict after over a decade and a half of incarceration that has to adjust to normal society.

If this gets picked up (which, on paper, it sounds like it should), we’ll be curious to see if it falls in line more with FX or FXx.
