Saturday Night Live alum Tracy Morgan won’t fuddle around with a pilot for FXX. The comedy-centric sister channel of FX has given a straight-to-series order for a Morgan-starred show. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia creators Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton (along with writer Luvh Rakhe) came up with the project with the 30 Rock star in mind. FX is allegedly very interested in working with Morgan, having already shot a pilot with him for a different show, Death Pact. That pilot starred Morgan as a formerly lazy, pot-dealing assistant high school coach who returns to his hometown as a decorated war hero. There has been no official pass from FX. This untitled FXX show is likely a replacement for it, though. While you’re waiting for Morgan to return to primetime cable, you can see him on Comedy Central in his new one hour special Bona Fide on Sunday, April 20 at 10 pm EST.
