There has been a flurry of activity on the pilot pickup front today. CBS just greenlighted comedy pilot Vince Uncensored, written by veteran sitcom writer Phoef Sutton and executive produced by Conan O’Brien.
The project, produced by O’Brien’s Conaco Prods. and Warner Bros. TV, is the first pilot to come out Conaco Prods.’s overall deal with WBTV signed last spring following O’Brien’s exit from NBC and the announcement of his new latenight talk show at TBS.
Vince Uncensored centers on a man who, after a life-changing experience, decides to take a more honest approach to his life, work and family. Sutton wrote the script and is executive producing with O’Brien and David Kissinger. Conaco most recently co-produced the short-lived NBC legal drama Outlaw.
