This is something that made me smile this morning on a number of levels.
The most obvious? Tracy Morgan is a really funny man. His comedic style is different and unique and I’ve always enjoyed watching him perform.
More subtle? Tracy came as close to death as anyone can come when he was involved in an horrendous car crash a few years ago. He had to learn to walk, talk, eat-you name it-all over again.
Anyway he’s making his return to series TV (he was GREAT on “30 Rock”) with “The Last O.G.” that makes its debut on TBS on April 3rd.
Here’s the official synopsis and trailer:
“The Last O.G. centers Tray (Morgan), an ex-con shocked to see just how much the world has changed when he is released from prison for on good behavior after a 15-year stint. 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.”
