TBS has given a straight-to-series order for a comedy series from comedians Tracy Morgan and Jordan Peele, the network said Monday.

The as yet titled series stars Morgan (30 Rock) as a former inmate released from a 15-year prison stint who is shocked to see how much the world has changed in his absence, according to network officials.

Morgan, Peele (Key & Peele), Eric and Kim Tannenbaum (Two and A Half Men) and Joel Zadak (Key & Peele) will serve as executive producers for the series.

"Tracy and Jordan are two of today's most sought-after and authentically funny comedians, and this show captures all the hilarity you would expect from this brilliant duo," said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of programming for TBS in a statement. "TBS is becoming a home for the most creative and diverse comedy creators in the business, and Tracy and Jordan are a perfect fit for this network."
