TBS Developing Sitcoms with Conan O'Brien, Norm MacDonald Talk Show
TBS announced five new series currently in development Wednesday, including two comedies executive-produced by Conan O'Brien, along with a Norm MacDonald talk show.
Most Likely, from O'Brien and comedian Jeff Ross, and written by Josh Heald (Hot Tub Time Machine), follows a guy who was voted "most likely to succeed" in high school. Ten years later, he loses his job and ends up working for his former classmate, the stereotypical high school jock.

O'Brien's second series, Zone Lord, is a sitcom about three roommates who wake up one morning and realize that a hip (but evil) alien has moved into their building.
The Kid is the third addition to TBS' new scripted slate. Inspired by a story from Sports Illustrated, The Kid follows Quinn, a young golf prodigy who hires an unconventional new caddy and enters the "high-rolling, fast-moving big-time" world of professional golf. The series is written and executive-produced by Donald Todd. Golf legend Phil Michelson's longtime caddy, Jim "Bones" Mackay, is also involved in the project.
The network's two unscripted series include Norm MacDonald is Trending, a talk show about bizarre and entertaining pop culture events, and an as-yet-untitled competition game show.
