More Coco Comedy: TBS Buys Multi-Cam Sitcom from Conan O'Brien
Apparently the documentary was right: Conan O'Brien really can't stop. In just a couple of years, the man has gone from "Tonight Show" host to unemployed to touring comedian to talk show host on TBS.
Now, Conan is working on a brand new comedy pilot for his host network.
The project will be a multi-camera sitcom, much along the lines of the other original shows currently running on TBS. The story will follow a "family man who quits his day job and returns to the neighborhood where he grew up," according to THR.
We have yet to see if this is a personal story of Conan's, but if it's set in Boston you can assume it probably is.
Now that TBS has solidified Conan as their late-night guy, we can probably expect even more content from him down the road. If TBS' relationship with Tyler Perry is any indication, Conan could have multiple shows running on the network.
And considering the creative team behind this project (which also includes "Eagleheart" co-producer David Kissinger), that'll be a good thing. Conan has a unique brand of humor, and I for one am pretty darned excited to see what he comes up with.
