Tracy Morgan may soon be returning to regular television work at the FX network.

FX announced that Morgan will develop and star in a comedy pilot about a career criminal trying to make it back into society after 15 years in prison. Jordan Peele of Comedy Central's "Key and Peele" is a co-writer of the show's pilot.

Morgan, the former "30 Rock" and "Saturday Night Live" comic, was seriously hurt in a New Jersey highway crash in June 2014 and has been getting back to work in recent months after a long recuperation.
