Conan O'Brien Sell "Fat Chance" Comedy To TBS

Conan O'Brien Sell "Fat Chance" Comedy To TBS

Conan O'Brien looks to continue his stranglehold of TBS as he recently sold his comedy pilot to Ted Turner's other network. The cable channel has ordered a script for the half-hour comedy sitcom, says The Hollywood Reporter. Powered by O'Brien's Conaco and Warner Horizon Television, Fat Chance centers on two best friends, an overweight man named Chance Hubbard and his Joe Manganiello-esque friend named Rollie.

Fat Chance... get it?! If that doesn't pull you in—the show takes a look at what happens to their friendship when a beautiful girl enters their lives. Is it just us or does this sound like another X added to Coco's strike count? The last big show Conan's production company sold, NBC's Justice, was eventually cancelled after poorly performing. Will #TeamCoco still support their leader's latest venture? We'll keep you posted as more news develops!
