Emmy® nominated comedy star Tracy Morgan is teaming up with “Girls Trip” actress Tiffany Haddish for the new TBS comedy series, “The Last O.G.” Morgan serves as the show’s executive producer alongside “Get Out” creator and comedic actor Jordan Peel. Episodes begin Tuesday, April 3 at 10:30 p.m. EST.
According to the press release, “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 for on good behavior after a 15-year stint. Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, he discovers that his former girlfriend, Shay (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 Last O.G.” 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. Special guest stars include Edi Patterson (“Vice Principals”), Chrissy Metz (“This is Us”), Malik Yoba (“Designated Survivor”), Joel Marsh Garland (“Orange is the New Black”), Heather Simms (“As the World Turns”), Wendy Makkena (“NCIS”) and Ray Anthony Thomas (“The Hoop Life”).
“The Last O.G.” is also executive produced by Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum, John Carcieri and Joel Zadak of Principato Young.
