here’s something I’ve been waiting to share with all of you Conan O’Brien fans out there. Since his unpleasant departure from NBC and now joining the “Very Funny” network TBS, Conan has finally shot a promo for his new show coming in November. Conan gets into a car filled with explosives and un-poped popcorn and drives it off a cliff. This promo was just released hours ago. Personally I love the promo and enjoy watching it over and over. I stongly believe his new show on TBS will be hit. The only bad thing is that his long time drummer Max Weinberg will not be on the show but I’m still anxious to see how the show will turn out.
TNT [We Know Drama] and TBS [Very Funny] have announced their orders for four pilots: Perception, Untitled Allan Loeb Project and Dallas from TNT; Brain Trust from TNS. Perception, Untitled Allan Loeb Project and Brain Trust are being described as procedurals, while Dallas updates the soap opera travails of the Ewing family to the 21st century.
Details from the press release follow the jump.
The buddy lawyer series Franklin & Bash [pictured above ], starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar (NYPD Blue, TNT’s Raising the Bar) and Breckin Meyer (Heroes), has been given a ten episode order by TNT, while TBS has given and eight episode order to the one-hour comedy series Glory Daze, a 1980s-set college comedy. Series details follow the jump.
Conan O’Brien has a new home and it’s on TBS – not Fox Television.
According to a press release from TBS, O’Brien will premiere his 11 p.m. talk show show in November. The move will shift George Lopez’s show to midnight. Today’s announcement comes as O’Brien begins his national comedy tour in Eugene, Oregon.
In announcing the deal, O’Brien said, in a typically tongue-in-cheek tone, ”In three months, I’ve gone from network television to Twitter to performing live in theaters, and now I’m headed to basic cable. My plan is working perfectly.”
