With Conan O’Brien’s new late-night show for TBS still months away, the cable network has picked up an one-hour special featuring some of O’Brien’s writers, including regular sidekick Andy Richter and Reggie Watts. Tentatively titled Team Coco presents Conan’s Writers Live, it is based on a stage show that has played to sold-out audiences in Los Angeles. The showcase will be taped on June 17 at the Bank of America Theater in Chicago as part of TBS’ Just For Laughs festival. The special, which will premiere on TBS on June 27, will also feature the musical stylings of comedian Watts, who is opening for O’Brien on The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour.
