Conan O'Brien to exec produce comedy pilot for TBS

Conan O’Brien may soon have a second show on TBS. The network announced today that it has ordered a pilot from the talk show host’s production company, Conaco. The untitled multi-camera comedy will revolve around a family guy who leaves his job and returns to his childhood neighborhood, where he meets up with his old best friend. Ben Wexler (Still Standing) has been tapped as showrunner and co-writer of the project; O’Brien is also serving as an executive producer. The pilot will be shot later this year.

    When he returns home, does he put a hispanic man out of a job?

      Only if it’s an unfunny Hispanic man.

      That’s like being mad at somebody for putting down an unfunny cat whose slowing dying.

      It’s not like he promised him his timeslot and then went back on his word; Conan actually gave George BETTER ratings.

        Somebody promised somebody his timeslot, and then went back on his word?
        Who did that?
        Really, Conan should figure out how to raise the ratings on his OWN show, instead of trotting out ANOTHER loser.

        i have a feeling that he didnt concentrate his efforts on kicking out the person who gave him his job since he himself wanted to save his ass by depending on conan despite the fact that he has zilch talent to be a talk show host. life is more simple than it seems, its humans who make it complex and redundant.

      He is not funny, him comedy is for the wackos and he is dam ugly… dry

    I’m convinced more people on TV return to their “wacky” small town than people do in real life. I think I know maybe one dude that’s moved back to my home town. And it’s not wacky.

      Newsflash: animals can talk on TV, everything goes back to normal at the end, people get into hilarious mishaps, the main characters rarely ever die…
