Tracy Morgan will team up with Jordan Peele (of Key & Peele) for a new comedy pilot on FX. Although you never know which pilots will be picked up to series, this sounds like a smart bet:
“A career criminal (Morgan) is released from prison after 15 long years, hoping to reintegrate into a society that long ago left him behind. Now a man whose only expertise is making grilled cheese with an iron must navigate a modern world of political correctness, Internet, and self-driving cars.”
When Morgan was critically injured in a car accident in 2014, he was working on a series for FXX produced by the folks behind It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The idea of Morgan + It’s Always Sunny was a brilliant one, but that project will not be going forward. However, Morgan and Peele should also be a great team. The new project is untitled.
Key & Peele ended last year. Peele recently got engaged to Brooklyn 99’s Chelsea Peretti.
