EXCLUSIVE: TBS has ordered two comedy series ahead of its upfront presentation next week: Deon Cole’s Black Box, written by and starring Conan writer and performer Deon Cole and executive produced by Conan O’Brien; and Who Gets The Last Laugh?, from Punk’d co-creators Jason Goldberg and Ashton Kutcher. The series, both from Warner Horizon Television, are slated to premiere in 2013.
