Tracy Morgan is about to return to TV with a star-studded new TBS comedy. The cable channel today released the first trailer for “The Last O.G.,” which you can watch below.
Morgan executive produces the show along with creator Jordan Peele. The series bows Tuesday, April 3.
“‘The Last O.G.’ centers on Tray (Morgan), an ex-con shocked to see just how much the world has changed when he is released from prison on good behavior after a 15-year stint,” TBS says in an announcement released today. “Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, he discovers that his former girlfriend, Shay (played by emerging, breakout star actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish), has married an affable, successful white man (Ryan Gaul) who is helping raise the twins (Taylor Mosby & Dante Hoagland) Tray 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 on unfamiliar territory.”
The series also stars Cedric the Entertainer as the head of the halfway house where Tray is staying, and Allen Maldonado as Tray’s cousin Bobby, who helps him adjust to life on the outside. Executive-producing with Morgan and Peele are Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum, John Carcieri and Joel Zadak of Principato Young.
