After the success of 30 Rock, Tracy Morgan’s career was on a roll. But then came 2014’s tragic accident — a truck driver fell asleep at the wheel and hit the vehicle carrying Morgan and members of his team. One of Morgan’s friends was killed, and Morgan was seriously injured. After being in a coma for two weeks, he began a long, grueling rehabilitation. Three years later, he’s ready to resume his career with a new series called The Last O.G. He told us that, in a way, the series mirrors his own life. While his character starts a new life after being released from prison, Morgan feels like he’s starting anew after the tragedy. (Click on the media bar below to hear Tracy Morgan)
The Last O.G. premieres Tuesday, October 24 on TBS.
