30 Rock may be leaving primetime, but Tracy Morgan will continue to stay in our living rooms.

The actor and comedian has signed on to a new series with FX called Death Pact, the network says. Morgan will play a "formerly lazy, pot-dealing assistant high school coach, who returns to his hometown as a decorated war hero. He runs across three down-on-their-luck friends and former students and sucks them into his new radical self-help philosophy, which involves harsh consequences for failure."

A pilot for the single-camera comedy will be shot in New York this summer and produced by the showrunners from Two and a Half Men.

Hopefully we'll be seeing more of Tracy on TV this fall!
