Tracy Morgan Will Star In 'Death Pact' - His Own Comedy Series On FX


Actor and comedian Tracy Morgan has closed a deal to star in the FX Networks comedy series pilot, Death Pact, from Rob Long and Tad Safran

Production of the half-hour pilot episode will take place this summer in New York or New Jersey.

Death Pact was co-created by Rob Long (Cheers) and Tad Safran (The Long Weekend), who also serve as Executive Producers/Writers. 

In Death Pact, Morgan stars 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.

Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum (Two and a Half Men and the new CBS comedy We Are Men) of the Tannenbaum Company are Executive Producers. 

Death Pact is produced by FX Productions.

No word on who his 3 co-stars will be just yet.

Most recently, Tracy Morgan hosted the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.

Given his *edgy* brand of humor, the FX network should be a suitable home for Morgan.
