Have you watched the film “Girls Trip” yet? If your answer is “no”, then you need to go see it NOW! The history-making, box office hit is worth the $10 ticket, and deserves a stamp of approval for a sequel!
Well, your wishes have been granted, because this fall, she’ll be starring in a TBS show called “The Last O.G.”, created by record-breaking director Jordan Peele (“Get Out”) and John Carcieri (“Vice Principals”).
Also starring Tracy Morgan, TBS says the show:
“…centers on Tray (Morgan), an ex-con who is shocked to see just how much the world has changed when he is released from prison for good behavior after a 15-year stint. Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, he discovers that his former girlfriend, Shay (Tiffany 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 unfamiliar territory.”
Based on this dynamic storyline, it might be worth watching for a few laughs, lessons and surprises.
Cedric the Entertainer plays the head of the halfway house where Tray stays, and Dante Hoagland (Young Michael Bivins in “The New Edition Story”) and Allen Maldonado (“black-ish”, “Survivor’s Remorse”) co-star. Guest stars include Malik Yoba, Heather Simms (“Law & Order”) and more.
Morgan, Peele, and Carcieri will executive produce the comedy along with Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum and Joel Zadak of Principato Young.
The series premiere is Tuesday, Oct. 24, with back-to-back episodes at 10 and 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT). Subsequent episodes will air Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT).
