TBS Orders Comedy Pilot From Conan O'Brien


TBS has ordered a comedy pilot from Conan O'Brien's Conaco and Warner Horizon Television.

The multi-camera sitcom is about a family man who quits his day job and returns to his childhood neighborhood and reunites with his former best friend.

O'Brien, Conan executive producer Jeff Ross and David Kissinger are on board to executive produce the half-hour along with pilot writers Ben Wexler, Ross Novie and Jay Rondot. Wexler will also serve as showrunner for the untitled pilot, set to start shooting this year.

TBS already airs O'Brien's late-night talker Conan.
