Cedric the Entertainer, Tracy Morgan to Star in 'The Last O.G.'
Cedric the Entertainer, Taylor Mosby and Dante Hoagland have been cast as regulars in the upcoming comedy The Last O.G.
Starring Tracy Morgan, the show was created by Jordan Peele and John Carcieri, who also serve as executive producers with Morgan, Eric Tannebaum, Kim Tannenbaum and Joel Zadak.
The former 'Saturday Night Live' cast member will join 'People of Earth' in Season 2.
The TBS series follows "an ex-con who is shocked to see just how much the world has changed when he is released on good behavior from a 15-year prison stint," the cable network said in a synopsis.
"Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, he discovers that his former girlfriend, Shay, has married an affable, successful white man who is helping raise Tray's twin sons who he 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 unfamiliar territory."
The sitcom is expected to debut later this year.
