Funny woman Tiffany Haddish is preparing to make a big splash.
The actress, who can currently be seen in NBC’s The Carmichael Show and Universal’s upcoming comedy Girls Trip, is set to co-star opposite Tracy Morgan in a TBS comedy executive produced by Jordan Peele (Get Out).
In the untitled series, Morgan’s character Tray is released on good behavior from a 15-year prison stint and must assimilate into a society that has changed radically.
Haddish will play Tray’s girlfriend, Shay. He broke up with her while in prison, hoping to spare her a long and hopeless wait. When Tray is released, he finds that Shay has transformed from a tough girl from the streets to an ultra-refined socialite who is now married to a white guy, who is the antithesis of Tray.
black-ish actor Allen Maldonado is also set to co-star in the currently untitled TBS series.
