TRACY MORGAN SET TO STAR IN NEW FX PILOT!

TRACY MORGAN SET TO STAR IN NEW FX PILOT!
Tracy Morgan is bringing his brand of comedy to FX. The 30 Rock comedian has closed a deal to star in comedy pilot Death Pact, from Rob Long and Tad Safran. The single-camera entry will feature Morgan as a formerly lazy, pot-dealing assistant high school coach who returns to his hometown as a decorated war hero. He runs across three down-on-their-luck friends and former students and sucks them into his new, radical self-help philosophy, which involves harsh consequences for failure. “Needless to say, anything starring Tracy Morgan could be off-the-charts hilarious, and we’re betting this one is,” FX’s executive vp original programming and development Nick Grad said in a statement announcing the news Thursday. “Rob Long, Tad Safran, Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum have delivered a terrific starring vehicle for Tracy. We look forward to casting the other three co-stars and getting started with production. This is going to be fun.” Pact was co-created by Long (Sullivan & Son, Cheers) and Safran (The Long Weekend), who will write and executive produce alongside EPs Eric and Kim Tannenbaum (Two and a Half Men) of the Tannenbaum Company. Production on the half-hour FX Productions pilot will take place this summer in either New York or New Jersey. Morgan, the touring stand-up whose other credits include Saturday Night Live, Why Stop Now and The Son of No One, as well as Long and the Tannenbaums are repped by CAA; Safran is repped by ICM Partners.
