It looks like comedian Tracy Morgan will be heading back to primetime television as the former SNL alum and 30 Rock cast member has been green lighted on a new FXX series.
The half hour comedy series will get an initial ten episode run on the cable channel and has been crafted by It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia creators Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton.
FXX has ordered 10 episodes of a new half-hour comedy series starring the “30 Rock” alum to premiere next year.
The untitled project hails from the creators of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” — Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton — and Luvh Rakhe, who will serve as executive producers and showrunners.
The show is scheduled to begin production in the next few months and will be set to premier in January of 2015 alongside It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
As you may recall, Morgan was already involved in another FXX show entitled ‘Do or Die’ which was set around Morgan as a former drug dealer returning to his hometown as a war hero, but the show never got off the ground as production halted before the comedy ever made the air.
