CBS Greenlights Comedy from Conan O'Brien, 'Bridesmaids' Star
The multi-cam show centers on three nerdy girlfriends on their "funcomfortable" quest to have "super fun" every Friday night.
CBS is looking to Conan O'Brien for laughs.
The network has ordered a pilot for Super Fun Night, a multi-camera comedy that revolves around three nerdy female friends on their "funcomfortable" quest to have "super fun" every Friday night.
The series, from O'Brien's Conaco shingle in association with Warner Bros. Television, will count Bridesmaids' Rebel Wilson as its star, writer and co-executive producer. O'Brien, along with Jeff Ross (Conan) and David Kissinger (Eagleheart, Andy Barker, P.I.), are attached as executive producers.
Fun Night joins a handful of comedy pilots set up at CBS, including Jon Favreau's Santa Monica set Tweaked and an untitled twenty-somethings ensemble comedy from The Muppets' Nick Stoller.
For O'Brien's part, this comedy is one of many projects that his Conaco has in development. Several others, including buddy comedy Fat Chance and an untitled Ben Wexler-run family-man comedy, are in contention at TBS.
Wilson and O'Brien are both repped by WME.
