The FX offshoot also bestowed a 10-episode, straight-to-series order to a sitcom starring 30 Rock alum Tracy Morgan. The untitled, half-hour project is slated to air alongside Sunny‘s upcoming 10th season, which will bow in 2015.
Both the Sunny renewal and the Morgan comedy are part of an overall deal with RCG Productions, which is run by Sunny‘s Rob McElhenny, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton. RCG will serve as creators/executive producers/showrunners for Morgan’s TV return, along with former Sunny producer Luvh Rahke.
RCG’s deal also includes a TBA comedy pilot order and script orders for Harder (penned by Howerton and Sunny co-EP Scott Marder); We’re Good, Thanks (written by Day and Sunny actresses Mary Elizabeth Ellis and Artemis Pebdani, with Ellis and Pebdani attached to star); and Blow-Up Dolls, written by and starring British comedienne Sarah Solemani).
