Tracy Morgan has landed his first comedy pilot since 30 Rock. And no, it has nothing to do with developing videogame porn. He's been cast as the lead in Death Pact, a series for FX about a once lazy, pot-dealing high school coach who becomes a war hero and unleashes a punishing new self-help regiment for three of his hard-luck friends and a down-and-out former student.
Death Pact was created by Rob Long (Cheers) and Tad Safran (The Long Weekend) and will be shot in New York and New Jersey this summer. If picked up, it could air on FX as soon as this fall.
