Tracy Morgan is returning to TV. Over the weekend, at the TCA’s it was announced that the comedian/actor will develop and star in a half-hour comedy pilot written by Jordan Peele and John Carcieri. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the show

centers on a career criminal who 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.

Morgan, Peele and Carcieri will serve as executive producers on the untitled pilot, which is tentatively set to begin production in the summer.
