Conan O’Brien’s writing team will appear on a TBS special. The standup special will be called Team Coco Presents Conan’s Writers Live and will air this weekend (Sunday at 10/9c). It will be a showcase for the writing talents of Conan’s team.
Conan won’t be appearing on the show himself though as he’s not allowed to appear on any TV shows until later this year, because of his exit deal with NBC (hence the name of his recent theatre tour – “Conan O’Brien presents The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour”).
Speaking about Conan O’Brien’s new talk show coming to TBS this November, Andy Richter has said “the network couldn’t have been more open to us and more inviting to us and more welcoming to us… it was pretty lousy what happened and it felt pretty lousy, but I really do think we’re going to end up in a better place and that’s already becoming evident”.
The name for Conan’s new talk show has not yet been confirmed.
