Tracy Morgan, Jordan Peele Comedy Gets a 10-Episode Order at TBS

tracy-morgan-net-worth

Tracy Morgan is coming back to television!! Even better he is coming back with Jordan Peele! Morgan, of “30 Rock” and SNL fame, is heading to TBS for a new series where is he is partnering with  creators and executive producers Jordan Peele and John Carcieri (Eastbound & Down) for a still untitled comedy series.

The still untitled comedy series follows an ex-con trying to fit back into society after 15 years in prison. TBS has officially given the series a 10 episode order. Not much is known about the project yet. The few details we have is that TBS says Morgan will play a newly released prisoner named Tracy who “is shocked to see just how much the world has changed in his absence. Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, Tracy discovers that his former girlfriend has married an affable, successful white man, who is helping raise his twin sons he never knew existed. Wanting nothing more than to connect with his kids, but having neither the money to support them nor himself, Tracy falls back on the skills he learned in prison to make ends meet while treading on unfamiliar territory.”

The series was originally trying to find a home on FX who ordered a pilot script for the Morgan-Peele show back in January, but according to a report from Vulture, the network opted against ordering a series after reading the finished project. TBS then stepped in.

In a press release announcing the pickup, Brad Weitz, head of programming at TBS, called Morgan and Peele “two of today’s most sought-after and authentically funny comedians” and said their new show “captures all the hilarity you would expect” from the duo.

Morgan had been working for several years to get a project on FX before his June 2014 auto accident. This series with TBS marks his return to television since the devastating accident.

TBS hasn’t announced a production schedule or anticipated premiere date but sometime in 2017 is expected.

Watch the First Trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2

It feels like fans have been waiting ages for this announcement and when the announcement trailer hit, it showed us almost nothing. Rockstar Games confirmed earlier this week that fans would get “Red Dead Redemption 2” with the above announcement trailer but the teaser shows us very little about what to expect for the game.

The only piece of dialogue we hear—”Listen to me, when the time comes, you have to run and don’t look back. This is over” We don’t know who these ominous words come from but it is speculated that it could be at least said to John Marston as he leaves the gang of outlaws he ran with in his early days pre-Redemption.

Unfortunately we have pretty much forever to wait. Red Dead Redemption 2 releases in fall of 2017 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. (There’s no Nintendo Switch version… yet.)

Rockstar will continue to slowly release information about the game over the next year so this teaser is just the beginning.

James Patterson Cancels Release of The Murder of Stephen King

la-et-st-cbs-james-patterson-zoo-summer-2015-20140701

It feels like James Patterson JUST announced his latest book and now he has announced that his latest book, “The Murder of Stephen King” has been cancelled. Reportedly, the book was about a stalker reenacting the horrors from King’s books on the author himself.

In a statement to The Associated Press, Patterson said:

My book is a positive portrayal of a fictional character, and, spoiler alert, the main character is not actually murdered. Nevertheless, I do not want to cause Stephen King or his family any discomfort. Out of respect for them, I have decided not to publish The Murder of Stephen King.

Though Patterson says the novella was meant as a tribute to King, it always seemed in odd taste considering the two aren’t exactly friends. In the past, King has said of Patterson that he’s “a terrible writer but he’s very successful.”

King has not commented publicly on the book.

the-simpsons-tv-series-cast-wallpaper-109911.0.0

“The Simpsons” has an insane 600 episodes under their belt and FXX has plans to air all of them back to back for your viewing pleasure (?). The marathon will take an astounding 13 days, beginning at noon EST on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, (in case you need some background television for your belligerent family gatherings) lasting through Tuesday, Dec. 6.

“The Simpsons” will air its 600th episode, “Treehouse of Horror XXVII,” on Oct. 19 airing on Fox, the show’s mother network. The marathon will occur on FXX which describes it as the longest in television history. The previous record was also held by “The Simpsons” when FXX ran 552 episodes over 12 days back in 2014.

The episode count for the series is just going to continue to grow. The show is returned for its 28th season on Sept. 25 and has no plans to stop anytime soon.

New Trailer for Star Wars Spin Off “Rogue One” Released

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has officially released the final trailer and it revealed some pretty interesting information regarding the plot of the upcoming spin off. Check out the trailer above!

In the final trailer we get a glimpse into the reasons why Jyn Erso is so crucial to the Rebel Alliance’s plans to steal the plans for the Death Star. It turns out her father built the damned thing.

Rogue One takes place after Revenge of the Sith and before A New Hope. It focuses on the team tasked with stealing the plans for the first Death Star that are so instrumental to the original Star Wars from 1977.

Many fans have been concerned about the fact that Rogue One had gone through reshoots during production but based on this trailer, it doesn’t appear that too much has been altered in terms of tone and feel from the first trailer we saw.

Just a few more months before we see this rag tag team’s story play out even though we know how it ends.

Watch the Trailer for Season 3 of Black Mirror!

We have been away from the world of “Black Mirror” for far too long and Netflix is the best for bringing it back. And now they have released the trailer for the upcoming third season and it looks amazing.

The third season has lined up an impressive cast for what looks like a chilling new set of tales. The cast includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Kelly Macdonald, Michael Kelly, Mackenzie Davis, Jerome Flynn and Malachi Kirby. These new episodes include one that focuses on a world in which all interactions are ranked, a war story, a videogame thriller and a coming-of-age story.

Black Mirror returns on Friday, Oct. 21 on Netflix. Until then, check out the trailer above.
