Conan O’Brien may have celebrated his final episode of the Tonight Show last week followed by an Irish after party; however, it looks like the red-headed comedian’s working relationship with NBC is not over. The network has reportedly picked up a pilot from Conan’s production company, Conaco.
The pilot for Justice was written by John Eisendrath, according to The Hollywood Reporter, follows an ex-Supreme Court justice who quits the to start his own legal practice.
Conaco’s David Kissinger is expected to serve as one of the producers.
Leaving the door open for Jay Leno, Conan took a final bow on the Tonight Show on Friday night and made sure to go out laughing like always.
The funny man, who replaced Jay at 11:35 p.m. and was then taken off the air to make room for the car-collecting host to return, said a sad goodbye to his audience by cracking jokes about the network and what they would do with his big, brand new studio once he’s gone.
Conan settled on a $45 million exit deal with NBC, so it would be ironic if his production company produced a hit series for the network.
