The project was released by FX shortly before it was set to move forward which then lead to put out to tender and then acquired by TBS.

After being released on good behavior from a 15-year prison stint, Tracy (Morgan) 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.

TBS have picked up the unnamed series from a 10 episode season.
