The star-studded premiere took place at The William Vale Hotel with the after party immediately following on the 22nd floor rooftop, Westlight. Hosted by Andrew Saffir, founder of The Cinema Society, guests watched the pilot episode, indulged in cuisine from award-winning chef Andrew Carmellini, took in jaw-dropping views of the New York City skyline, and continued to party into the night while enjoying a performance by Busta Rhymes.

Premiering April 3rd, Morgan’s new comedy tells the tale of Ex-con Tray who is shocked when he sees how much the world has changed after being released from a 15-year prison stint for good behavior.

Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, he discovers that his former girlfriend, Shay (Tiffany Haddish), has married a successful white man (Ryan Gaul) who is helping raise twins (Taylor Mosby & Dante Hoagland) Tray never knew existed. Wanting nothing more than to connect with his kids, but having neither the money to support them nor himself, Tray falls back on the skills he learned in prison to make ends meet while treading unfamiliar territory.
